    Question Linear Equation In One Variable

    Can someone help me with this problem using just one variable?

    Divide 243 into 3 parts such that half of the first part, one-third of the second part & one-fourth of the third part are all equal.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    If half of the first part, a third of the second part and a quarter of the thrid part are equal, you can say that each of these 'divided' parts is equal to x.

    Then, to get the first part, multiply x by 2, to get the second part, multiply x by 3 and to get the third part, multiply x by 4.

    You get: 2x, 3x and 4x.

    Their sum gives 243. Cna you solve it now?
