3 consecutive odd integers. Let x be the first one, then the next one is x + 2, and the third one is x + 4. The largest plus two times the smallest is 26, so:
(x+5)2x-26
3x+5=26
3x=22
x=8

Separate 846 into 3 parts so that the second part is twice the first part and the third part is triple the second part.
Which of the following equations could be used to solve the problem?
846 = x + 2x + 3x;
846 = x + 2x + 6x;
846 ÷ 3 = x + 2x + 6x
**Weegy:** 846 ÷ 3 = x + 2x + 6x **User:**
Harvey plans to use 5 ft of shelving for four shelves whose lengths are to be a series of consecutive even numbers. How many inches long should each shelf be?
If x represents the length of the shortest shelf, which expression would represent the length of the longest shelf?
x + 3;
x + 4;
x + 6
**Weegy:** x + 4 (More)

Solve this problem on paper using all four steps. A girl scout troop sold cookies. If the girls sold 5 more boxes the second week than they did the first, and if they doubled the sales of the second week for the third week to sell a total of 431 boxes of cookies, how many did they sell each week? They sold boxes the first week, boxes the second week, and boxes the third week.
in a sumary **Weegy:** let the number of boxes sold in the first week = x
Then the number of boxes sold in the second week = x+5
the number of boxes sold in the third week = 2(x+5)
Total the number of boxes sold = 431
==> x + x+5 + 2(x+5) = 431
==> x + x + 5 + 2x + [ 10 = 431
==> 4x + 15 = 431
==> 4x = 431 - 15
==> 4x = 416
==> x = 416/4
==> x = 104
the number of boxes sold in the first week = 104
the number of boxes sold in the second week = 104 + 5 = 109
the number of boxes sold in the third week = 2(109) = 218

Select the correct answer for each statement.
k+2, k+3 , k+4k+10, k+12, k+14
will yield consecutive odd integers.
k+6, k+8 , k+10k+1, k+2, k+3
will yield consecutive integers
**Weegy:** k=(10-6)/1, so k=4/1 or 4 (More)
