5 + _____< 15, 19  _____ < 12, and 27 + _____ > 30... need to find 3 whole numbers that make each of these number sentences true.

I'll get you started.
5 + _9____< 15
Can you do the other two? 
um when it asks three whole numbers does that mean all the answers have to be 3 digits?

o nevermind ms.sue i get it now thank u so much for ur help!

Whole numbers mean don't use a fraction!

Does it have to be 3 different numbers or the same one? The number 8 fits into all 3 equations. If not then you can do the math. Take the first equation which is 5 + x < 15
subtract 5 from both sides. Then the equation is x < 10 so you could take any number that is less than 10 and it would make the equation true. 
just do it it is not hard it can be three digets but a whole number is a number greater than zero so no fractions
