In 1996, funding for a program increased by .80 billion dollars from the funding in 1995. In 1997, the increase was .62 billion dollars over the funding in 1996. For those 3 years the funding was 9.78 billion dollars. how much was funded in each of these 3 years

x +( x + 80) + (x + 80 + 62) =

from there I cannot continue since 9.78 billion is too little. Please look at the question correctly then send it so that i can finish calculating.

Supposed to find the funding for 1995

May 13th, 2015

x +( x + 80) + (x + 80 + 62) = 978

3x + 222 = 978

3x = 978 - 222

3x = 756

x = 252

Funding for 1995 was 252 billion

Its wrong. I just plugged it in for review and the computer system program I am using says its incorrect.

Please send me the full question again...as it is written.

It is written as it is shown above. There is no deviation of that problem.

May 13th, 2015

x +( x + 0.80) + (x + 0.80 + 0.62) = 9.78

3x + 2.22 = 9.78

3x = 9.78 - 2.22

3x = 7.56

x = 2.52

Funding for 1995 was 2.52 billion
