*Example:* The sum of three consecutive even numbers is 78. What is the smallest of these numbers?

Let us assume that the three consecutive even numbers are *x*, *x* + 2, and *x* + 4.

*x* + *x* + 2 + *x* + 4 = 78

3*x* + 6 = 78

3*x* = 72 implies *x* = 24

*Check your answer*: *x* + (*x* + 2) + (*x* + 4) = 24 + (24 + 2) + (24 + 4) = 24 + 26 + 28 = 78

*Example: *If the difference between two numbers is 38, and the ratio of two numbers is 6:5. Find the numbers.

Let the numbers be x and y.

Then *x* – *y* = 38 … Equation (1)

* x* : *y* = 6 : 5 … Equation (2)

From equation (1), *x *= 38 + *y*

Equation (2) implies => 5*x* = 6*y*

Put *x *= 38 + *y* in 5*x* = 6*y* Þ 5(38 + *y*) = 6y

228 + 5*y* = 6*y* implies *y* = 228

*x* = 38 + 228 = **266**

**The numbers are 228 and 266.**
