The third number is twice the first. The sum of the first and third exceeds the second by 2. Find the 3 numbers : let n = the first number : "The second of the three numbers is 2 more than the first." (n+2) = the 2nd number : " The third number is twice the first." 2n = the 3rd number : The sum of the first and third exceeds the second by 2. n + 2n = (n+2) + 2 3n = n + 4 3n - n = 4 2n = 4 n = 2 : Find the 3 numbers, 2, 4, 4
