# When 142 is added to a number, the result is 64 more then 3 times the number. find the numberâ€‹

THE NUMBER IS 39

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the number

Our equation is

142 + x = 64 + 3x

Now let us solve the equation by combining the like terms

142 - 64 = 3x - x

78 = 2x

78/2 = 2/2x

39 = x

x = 39

The number is 39.

Checking:

By substituting the value of x to the equation

142 + x = 64 + 3x

142 + 39 = 64 + 3(39)

181 = 181 TRUE

39

Step-by-step explanation:

142+x=64+3x

142-64=3x-x

78=2x

78/2=2x/2

39=x

Checking:

142+39=64+3(39)

181=64+117

181=181(true)

Its easy. kapag inexplain ko sayo nang pagtatype lang. di mo maiintindihan. better kung in person. so, tell it to your teacher or search it.
