m+w+c = 151
m = w-17
c = w+30
(w-17) + w + (w+30) = 151
w = 46 , which matches your solution
Hi guys & gals,
I require some assistance with the following word problem:
There are 151 residents in a town. There are 17 more women than men and 30 more children than women.
How many women are there?
Its looks pretty straight forward, i even figured out answers that will satisfy the above, however im stumped when it comes to translating this into an equation. In addition the solution i came to are 29 Men, 46 Women and 76 Children.
Your assistance is highly appreciated.
