There are 4 semi-trailer trucks parked in a line at the rest stop. After the first truck, each truck in the line weighs 2 tons more than the truck before it. The trucks weigh a total of 32 tons. how many pounds does each truck weigh?
assume the first track weight is x
the second track weight is x+2
third track weight is (x+2)+2=x+4
fourth track is (x+4)+2=x+6
ok, you found for x. Now we plug it in the equation to find out how much tons each truck weighs and then convert. What is the conversion for tons to pounds?
1 ton=2000 pounds
first track weights 10000 pounds
second track weights 14000 pounds
third track weights 18000 pounds
fourth track weights 22000 pounds
