one dividend in my fact family is 18. one of my divisors is twice one of my quotients. what three number
Let quotient be x.
Then the divisor is 2*x.
And condition gives equation
18/2x = x.
Multiplying both sides by x we get
18/2 = x^2 or x^2 = 9
This gives two solutions: x=3 and x=-3
THe corresponding divisors are 6 and -6.
Hence, we get two triples of numbers
18/6 = 3
18/(-6) = -3
