I need to convert an application problem into a linear equation. There is a pipe that is 240 in. cut into two pieces. One piece is three times the length of the other. Find the length of the pieces.
3x + x = 240; x = 60in
I need to find the length of the 2 pieces for this problem?
is like you have x + y = 240. But y = 3x. Plug in and find both x and y. so, y = 60 * 3 = 180 in.
I tried that, but when I put that answer in, the computer system said it was wrong.
the small piece of pipe is 60 and the larger piece is 180
I'll try that again, Thank You Very Much!!
you are welcome.
