on a line the distance between 2x and 7x plus 80 is 142. Solve for x

• grade 10 math -

7x+80 - 2x = 142
5x = 62

thank you oh so much.. means much

• grade 10 math -

so.. solving for x.. does not give a whole number?

• grade 10 math -

in this case, apparently not. Seems a bit odd, but that's so.

I'm assuming your question can be parsed as

distance between (2x) and (7x+80)

That would indeed be the larger minus the smaller, or 5x+80

i really appreciate this
