(i don't know if i posted but im just doing it again just in case) A 17 foot pipe is cut into three sections. The longest section is three times as long as the shortest and the middle sized section is two feet longer than the shortest. Find the length of each section to the nearest foot

shortest  x
middle  x+2
longest  3x
solve:
3x + x+2 + x = 17
