Three consecutive integers are such that the first plus 1/2 the second plus 7 less than twice the third is 2,101. What are the integers? I am having problems knowing what formulas to use and how to use them. The teacher I have is very vague in her explanations and uses book samples. Thus, I'm having a hard time completing assigned homework. Can you please tell me how to do the above? Thanks a lot, TomAnswer by askmemath(368)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the printer cost be 100% Tax of 6% would make the total cost = 100+6 = 106% We know that the printer cost \$100.70 So 106% = \$100.70 How much does 100% = ?? Can you solve it from here?
