    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)=?

  • algebra -word problems -

    (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
