Unknown number 5

I think of an unknown number. If we enlarge it five times then subtract 3 and the result decreases by 75% we get one greater than the number. What number am I thinking of?

Correct answer:

x =  7

Step-by-step explanation:


(5x-3)•(1-75/100) = 1+x

(5•x-3)•(1-75/100) = 1+x

25x = 175

x = 7
