Solve: (n+2)!/(n-1)! = 210

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1/(n-1)(n)(n+1)=210

OpenStudy (anonymous):

??

OpenStudy (agreene):

$\frac{(n+2)!}{(n+1)!}=n(n+1)(n+2)$ it is a bit more straight forward when you realise that.

Mr.klinker is 35 and his daughter is 10 , in how many years will mr.klinker be twice as old as his daughter? ~~PLZ HELP

OpenStudy (anonymous):

$\frac{(n+2)!}{(n-1)!}=(n+2)(n+1)(n)$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

can someone wplease explain how to do a problem like this

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i i get it i was doing it as plus one but its minus one

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so basically you have 3 consecutive integers whose product is 210, which gives n = 5

OpenStudy (anonymous):

15

OpenStudy (anonymous):

years

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well for a small number like 210 i would guess and check

OpenStudy (anonymous):

35+x=2(10+x) 35+x=20+2x 15=x

OpenStudy (anonymous):

thanks!

OpenStudy (anonymous):
