A new cruise ship line has just launched 3 new ships: the Pacific Paradise, The caribbean paradise, and the mediterranean paradise. The carribean paradise has 32 more deluxe stateroooms than the pacific paradise. The Mediterranean paradise has 37 few deluxe staterooms than three times the number of deluxe staterooms on the pacific paradise.Find the number of deluxe staterooms for each of the ships if the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 705

  • Basic Algebra -

    Pacific = x-Staterooms.
    Carribean = (x+32) Staterooms.
    Mediranean = (3x-37) Staterooms.

    x + (x+32) + (3x-37) = 705,
    5x - 5 = = 705,
    5x = 705 + 5 = 710,

    x = 142 Staterooms.
    x+32 = 174 Staterooms.
    3x-37 = 389 Staterooms.
