This is the solution to the number problem # 6.

In the following Algebra number word problem we have a 3 digit number which has a 100's digit 3 more than the 1's digit and its 10's digit is twice the 100's digit. When all 3 digits are added together, it is equal to 9. What is the number?

If you make the 1's digit x then you have:

100's digit = x + 3 and the

10's digit = 2(x + 3) or 2x + 6

Now when all these digits are added together you get 9 so...

x + x + 3 + 2x + 6 = 9

4x = 0

x = 0

so if x = 0(the 1's digit) then the 100's digit would be 0 +3 or just 3 and the 10's digit would be 0 + 6 or 6.

so the answer is 360
