Problem 1

One number is 3 more than the other. Their sum is 27. What are the numbers?

Let x – smaller number
x + 3 – larger number

Their sum is 27, so
x + (x + 3) = 27
2x + 3 = 27
2x = 27 – 3
2x = 24
x = 24/2
x = 12 (smaller number)
x + 3 = 15 (larger number).

Problem 2
One number is 5 less than the other. Their sum is 51. What are the numbers?

Let x – larger number
x – 5 –  smaller number

And their sum is 51. So,

x + (x – 5) = 51
2x – 5 = 51
2x = 51 + 5
2x = 56
x = 56/2
x = 28 (larger number)
x – 5 = 28 – 5 = 23 (smaller number).

Answer: 23 and 28

Problem 3

One number is 3 times the other number. Their sum is 48. What are the numbers?

Let x – smaller number
3x – larger number

And their sum is 48. So,

x + 3x = 48
4x = 48
x = 48/4
x = 12(1st number)

2nd number = 3x
3(12) = 36

Answer: 12 and 36

Problem 4
One number is 5 times the other number. Their difference is 52. What are the numbers?

Let x – smaller number
5x – larger number

And their difference is 52. So,

5x – x = 52
4x = 52
x = 52/4
x = 13 (smaller number)
5x = 5(13) = 65.

Checking: -13 – (-65)
-13 + (65) = 52

Answer: 13 and 65

Problem 5
The sum of three numbers is 36. The second number is 5 more than the first number and the third number is 8 less than the first number. What are the three numbers?

Let x – 1st number
x + 5 – 2nd number
x – 8 – 3rd number

Their sum is 36. So,
x + (x + 5) + (x – 8) = 36
3x – 3 = 36
3x = 36 + 3
3x = 39
x = 13 (1st number)
2nd number = x + 5 => (13) + 5 => 18
3rd number = x – 8 => (13) – 8 => 5

Checking: 13 + 18 + 5 = 36

Problem 6

The sum of three numbers is 98. The second number is twice the first number and the third number twice the second number. What are the three numbers?

14, 28 & 56

Let x = 1st number
2x = 2nd number (twice the first)
2(2x)=3rd number (twice the second)

And their sum is 98. So,

x + (2x) + 2(2x) = 98
x + 2x + 4x =98
7x = 98
x = 98/7
x = 14 (1st number)

2nd number = 2x => 2(14) => 28

3rd number = 2(2x) => 2(2(14)) => 2(28) => 56

Problem 7

One number is two more than thrice the other. Their sum is 26. What are the two numbers?

Let x – 1st number
3x + 2 = 2nd number (two more than thrice the other)

And their sum is 26.

x + (3x + 2) = 26
4x + 2 = 26
4x = 26 – 2
4x = 24
x = 24/4
x = 6 (1st number)

2nd number = (3x + 2) => 3(6) + 2 => 18 + 2 => 20

Answer: 6 and 20

Problem 8

One number is thrice the other. When 3 is added to the larger and 7 is subtracted from the smaller, their sum becomes 32. What are the two numbers?

Let x – smaller number
3x – larger number (thrice the other)

When 3 is added to larger number… = 3x + 3

…and 7 is subtracted to smaller = x – 7

Their sum becomes 32. So,

(3x + 3) + (x – 7) = 32
4x – 4 = 32
4x = 32 + 4
4x = 36
x = 36/4
x = 9(smaller number)

Larger number = 3x = 3(9) = 27

Checking:
When 3 is added to larger number = 27 + 3 = 30
And 7 is subtracted to smaller number = 9-7 = 2

Their sum is 32 = 30 + 2 = 32

Answer: 9 and 27

Problem 9

The sum of two consecutive numbers is 91. What are the two numbers?

Let x – first number

Answer: 32 and 34

PCSR Problem 11

The sum of two positive consecutive ODD integers is 36. What are the two numbers?

Let x – 1st odd number
x + 2 – 2nd odd number

And their sum is 36.

x + (x + 2) = 36
2x + 2 = 36
2x = 36-2
2x = 34
x = 34/2
x = 17(1st number)
x + 2 = 17 + 2 = 19 (2nd number)

Checking:

17 + 19 = 36
And 17 and 19 are both odd numbers

Answer: 17 and 19

Problem 12

The sum of three positive consecutive ODD integers is 81. What are the three integers?

Let x – 1st odd integer
x + 2 – 2nd odd integer
x + 4 – 3rd odd integer

Their sum is 81.

x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 81
3x + 6 = 81
3x = 81 – 6
3x = 75
x = 75/3
x = 25 (1st int)

2nd int = (x + 2) => 25 + 2 => 27
3rd int = (x + 4) => 25 + 4 => 29

Checking:

25 + 27 + 29 = 81
They are consecutive ODD integers.

Answer: 25, 27 & 29

Problem 13

The sum of the smallest and the largest of five positive consecutive integers is 108. What is the third integer?

Let x – 1st integer
x + 1 = 2nd integer
x + 2 = 3rd integer
x + 3 = 4th integer
x + 4 = 5th integer

Since the sum of the first and the fifth is 108,

x + (x + 4) = 108
2x + 4 = 108
2x = 108 – 4
2x = 104
x = 104/2
x = 52 (smallest number).

2nd int. => (x + 1) => 52 + 1 => 53
3rd int => ( x + 2) => 52 + 2 => 54
4th int. => (x + 3) => 52 + 3 => 55
5th int. => (x + 4) => 52 + 4 => 56

Since we are looking for the third integer, the answer is 54.

Problem 14
The average of four positive consecutive EVEN integers is 19. What is the largest integer?

Let x – 1st even integer
x + 2 = 2nd even integer
x + 4 = 3rd even integer
x + 6 = 4th even integer

Their average is 19.

(x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6))/4 = 19
(4x + 12)/4 = 19

Multiplying both sides of the equation by 4,

4x + 12 = 19(4)
4x + 12 = 76
4x = 76 – 12
4x = 64
x = 64/4
x = 16(1st even int).

2nd even int. = x + 2 => 16 + 2 => 18
3rd even int. = x + 4 => 16 + 4 => 20
4th even int. = x + 6 => 16 + 22 => 22

Checking:

(16 + 18 + 20 + 22)/4 = 19
(76)/4 = 19
19 = 19

Answer: 22(largest number)

PCSR Problem 15
The average of seven positive consecutive integers is 31. What is the smallest integer?

Let x – 1st integer
x + 1 = 2nd integer
x + 2 = 3rd integer
x + 3 = 4th integer
x + 4 = 5th integer
x + 5 = 6th integer
x + 6 = 7th integer

Their average is 31.

(x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) + (x +3) + (x + 4) + (x + 5) + (x + 6))/7 = 31
(7x + 21)/7 = 31
7x + 21 = 31(7)
7x + 21 = 217
7x = 217 – 21
7x = 196
x = 196/7
x = 28(1st integer)

2nd int. = x + 1 => 28 + 1 => 29
3rd int. = x + 2 => 28 + 2 => 30
4th int. = x + 3 => 28 + +3 => 31
5th int. = x + 4 => 28 + 4 => 32
6th int. = x + 5 => 28 + 5 => 33
7th int. = x + 6 => 29 + 6 => 34

Checking:
(28 + 29 + 30 + 31 + 32 + 33 + 34)/7 = 31
217/7 = 31
31 = 31

Since we are looking for the smallest integer, the answer is 28.

Week 4 Review Answers and Solutions

Below are the solutions and answers to the Week 4 Practice Problems and Solutions.

Practice Exercises 1

Note: In multiplying fractions, we multiply the numerator by the numerator of the other fraction, and then multiply the denominator by the denominator of the other fraction. For whole numbers, we can put 1 as the denominator. All fractions must be in lowest terms.

A. 1/2 × 1/3 = 1/6
B. 2/3 × 4/5 = 8/15
C. 8/1 × 5/6 = 40/6 = 6 4/6 or 6 2/3
D. 2 5/8 × 3 = 21/8 × 3/1 = 63/8 = 7 7/8
E. 3 1/8 × 4/5 = 25/8 × 4/5 = 100/40 = 2 20/40 or 2 1/2
F. 1 2/3 × 2 3/4 = 5/3 × 11/4 = 55/12 = 4 7/12

Practice Exercises 2

A. When dividing fractions you get the reciprocal of the divisor, and then multiply. In 1/5÷ 3/10, the divisor 3/10 and the reciprocal of 3/10 is 10/3. So, 1/5 × 10/3 = 10/15 or 2/3

B. 1/2 ÷ 3/8 = 1/2 × 8/3 = 8/6 = 1 2/6 or 1 1/3

C. 9 ÷ 3/7 = 9 × 7/3 = 63/3 or 21

D. 2 5/8 ÷ 2

First, we convert 2 5/8 to improper fraction as follows. That is 2\frac{5}{8} = \frac{8 \times 2 + 5}{8} = \frac{21}{8}. Don’t forget that the denominator of the mixed fraction is the same as the denominator of the improper fractions.

Here, the reciprocal of 2 is 1/2. So, 21/8 × 1/2 = 21/16 = 1 5/16

E. 3 1/8 ÷ 3/5 = 25/8 × 5/3 = 125/24 = 5 5/24

F. 2 3/4 ÷ 1 1/8 = 11/4 ÷ 9/8 = 11/4 × 8/9 = 88/36 = 2 16/36 or 2 4/9

Practice Problems

Note: In multiplication and division of fractions, all mixed fractions must be converted to improper fractions (see Practice Problem 2D above).

1.) 2/3 × 1/4 = 2/12 or 1/6

2.) 3/5 × 35/1=105/5 = 21 (women)
2/5 × 35/1 = 70/5 = 14 (men)

3.) 2 3/4 × 7 = (11/4) ×  7 = 77/4 = 19 1/4

4.) A = L × W
A = (35 1/4) × (20 1/2) = (141/4) × (41/2)
= 5781/8= 722 5/8

5.) 2 4/5 × 5/1= 14/5 × 5/1 = 14

6.) 1 1/2 L juice is to be shared equally by 6 friends, so 1 1/2 ÷ 6.

The mixed fraction  1 1/2 is 3/2 in improper form.

Dividing by 6 is the same as multiplying by 1/6, so 3/2 × 1/6 = 3/12

3/12 is not yet in its lowest term. So get its lowest term, divide the numerator and denominator by their GCF which is 3.  So, 3/12 will become 1/4.

The final answer is 1/4 L.

7.) 8 ÷ 2/5 = 8 × 5/2 = 8/1 × 5/2 = 40/2 = 20.

Answer: 20 cakes

8.) Bookshelf length divided by book’s thickness = number of books that will fit in the bookshelf

5 1/4 feet ÷ 1 1/2 inches = ?

Notice that the units are in feet and inches. We cannot proceed until the units are the same, so we need  to convert feet into inches. (1 ft = 12 in) So 5 ft × 12 in per ft = 60 in. We still have 1/4 ft, so 1/4 of 12 which is 3 in. All in all, we have 63 in. Now our equation is

63  ÷ 3/2 = 63/1 × 2/3

= 126/3 = 42.

Answer: 42 books

9.) 5 pumpkin pies are to be shared equally among 12 persons, equals 5/12.

10.) We have 8 3/4 hectares ÷ 4 children

35/4 ÷ 4 =35/4 × 1/4 = 35/16

Converting 35/16 to mixed fraction, we have 2 3/16.
