Heating plant

Workers dump imported coke at the heating plant. On the first day used half of the amount, the second day three quarters the rest and on the third day left 120 tons. How much coke did they dump at the heating plant?

Correct answer:

x =  960 t

Step-by-step explanation:


x-1/2 x - 3/4 • (x-1/2 x) = 120

x-1/2•x - 3/4 • (x-1/2•x) = 120

0.5x = 480

x = 960
