 Problems-with-consecutive-odd-even-integers/41993: Find two consecutive odd integers such that the square of the larger is 3 less than 12 times the smaller1 solutions Answer 27141 by checkley71(8403)   on 2006-06-13 19:43:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!X & (X+2) ARE THE TWO CONSECUTIVE ODD NUMBERS. THEN (X+2)~2+3=12X OR X~2+4X+4+3=12X OR X~2-8X+7=0 OR (X-7)(X-1)=0 OR X=7 & X=1 THUS 7 & 9 ARE THE CONSECUTIVE ODD NUMBERS 9~2=81 & 12*7=84 THUS THE SQUARE OF THE LARGER (81) IS 3 LESS THE 12*7=84
 Points-lines-and-rays/41991: This question is from textbook The side of a square is 4 cm longer than a side of an equilateral triangle. The perimeter of the square 24 cm longer than the perimeter of the triangle. Find the lengths of a side of the square and the side of the triangle.1 solutions Answer 27140 by checkley71(8403)   on 2006-06-13 19:28:19 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!THE REASON FOR ADDING THE 24 TO THE TRIANGLE IS BECAUSE IT IS 24 CM SHORT OF THE SQUARES PERIMETER THUS TO BALANCE THE EQUATION YOU MUST EITHER ADD THE 24 TO THE PERIMETER OF THE TRIANGLE OR SUBTRACT 24 FROM THE PERIMETER OF THE SQUARE SO THE TWO EQUATIONS ARE BALANCED. THE 4 SIDES OF THE SQUARE ARE (X+4) AND THE 3 SIDES OF THE TRIANGLE ARE X. THEN THE PERIMETER OF THE SQUARE IS 4(X+4) OR 4X+16 & THE PERIMETER OF THE TRIANGLE 3X & THE SQUARE 4X+16=3X+24 OR 4X-3X=24-16 OR X=8 TRINGLE SIDES=8 & THE SQUARE SIDES ARE 8+4=12 PROOF 3*8=24 PERIMETER OF THE TRIANGLE & 4(8+4)=4*12=48 & 48-24=24 THE DIFFERENCE IN THE TWO PERIMETERS.
