Lookout tower

How high is the lookout tower? If each step was 3 cm lower, 60 more of them were on the lookout tower. If it were 3 cm higher again, it would be 40 less than it is now.

Correct answer:

x =  36 m

Step-by-step explanation:

x=n s x=(n+60) (s3) x=(n40) (s+3)  n s=(n+60) (s3) n s=(n40) (s+3)  3n60s=180 3n40s=120  n=240 s=15  s1=s m=s/100  m=15/100  m=0.15 m  x=n s1=240 0.15=36 m
