- The third of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper.

What weight will be taken from each of the previous ingots to form a new ingot of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper?

## Solution of exercise 1

John purchased a computer and a TV for dollars and later sold both items for dollars.

How much did each item cost, knowing that John sold the computer for % more than the purchase price, and the TV for % more?

x price of the computer.

y price of the TV.

price of sale of the computer.

x units (ones column)

y tens (tens column)

number

number reversed

The number is 63

---|---|---|---|

Mine A | |||

Mine B | |||

Mine C |

How many tons from each mine should be used to obtain tons of nickel, tonnes of copper, and tons iron?

## Solution of exercise 10

The age of a father is twice the sum of the ages of his two sons. Some years ago (exactly the difference of the current ages of children), the father's age was three times the sum of the ages of his sons. After some years (the amount that is equal to the sum of the current age of the children), the sum of the ages of all three will be years. How old was the father when his sons were born?

**x = Current age of the father.**

**y = Current age of the eldest son.**

**z = Current Age of youngest son.**

*Current Relationship:*

*It y - z years*

*Within y + z:*

At birth, children, the father was 35 and 40, respectively.

## Solution of exercise 11

Three types of grain are sold by a farmer: wheat, barley, and millet.

Each portion of wheat sells for dollars, the barley for dollars, and the millet for dollars.

If he sells portions in total and receives dollars from the sale, how many portions are sold of each type?

**x = volume of wheat.**

**y = Volume of barley.**

**z = Volume of millet.**

Considering that the three variables are natural numbers, and that their sum is 100, the following solutions are obtained:

## Solution of exercise 12

There are three ingots.

- The first of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper.
- The second of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper.
- The third of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper.

What weight will be taken from each of the previous ingots to form a new ingot of grams of gold, grams of silver, and grams of copper?

x = weight of the 1st ingot.

y = weight of the 2nd ingot.

z = weight of the 3rd ingot.

**Gold**

In the 1st ingot, the law is:
