  1. Please do not post this question again today. I've already removed your other three posts.

    Be patient. All of our tutors are volunteers, and we don't like to be hounded. We answer the questions we can when we can.

  2. what's all this power stuff?

    1st piece = x
    2nd piece = 2x
    3rd piece = 4x

    So, you have
    x+2x+4x = 28
    x = 4
