During last week's visit to this same pear tree, Pete ate 3 times as many pears as Tweet, and Tweet ate 5 fewer pears than Honk. If together the boys ate 25 pears, how many pears did Honk eat during last week's visit?

  • math -

    T = (H-5 )
    P = 3 T so P = (3 H - 15)
    T + P + H = 25

    (H-5) +(H-15) + H = 25

    3 H - 20 = 25

    3 H = 45

    H = 15 the end
