The second part is three more than three times the first part and the third part is 10 yards less than the first. What is the length of each part. I have this: Let x = length of the 1st part Let 3 + x * 3 = 2nd part Let x - 10 = 3rd part From there I cant figure out how to write in an equation. Gets all confusing from there. x + 3 + ( x * 3 ) + x - 10 = 223 3x * 3 - 10 = 223 3x * ( - 7) = 223 -7 3x = 216 --------- both by 3 x = 72 Click here to see answer by stanbon(57387)
