if onehalf of an integer is subtracted from threefifths of the next consecutive integer, the difference is 3. What are the two integers?
i need help with this can anyone out there help me???? please

the inegers are the 2 that your trying to find the difference of...it makes no sense..you didn't finish writing the problem either..

5+(8)=?

(3/4)(x+1)  (1/2)x = 3
3(x+1)  2x = 12
3x + 3  2x = 12
x = 9
So the two integers are 9 and 10
check:
3/4(10)  1/2(9)
=15/2  9/2
= 3
