If the sum of all three low temperatures is 35, what was the low temperatures for each of the three days.Answer by ptaylor(2052)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x=low temp on Monday Then (4x+1)=low temp on Tuesday And (x+10)=low temp on Wednesday Now we are told that the sum of these three temps is 35. So our equation to solve is: x+(4x+1)+(x+10)=35 get rid of parens and collect like terms 6x+11=35 subtract 11 from both sides 6x+11-11=35-11 simplify 6x=24 divide both sides by 6 x=4 degrees-------------------------low on Monday 4x+1=16+1=17 degrees---------------------low on Tuesday x+10=4+10=14 degrees-------------------------low on Wednesday CK 4+17+14=35 35=35 Hope this helps-----ptaylor
