Three friends

Three friends had balls in ratio 2: 7: 4 at the start of the game. Could they have the same number of balls at the end of the game? Write 0, if not, or write the minimum number of balls they had together.

Result

n =  39

Solution:

n=LCM(3,2+7+4)=39 a=22+7+4 n=22+7+4 39=6 b=72+7+4 n=72+7+4 39=21 c=42+7+4 n=42+7+4 39=12 d=n/3=39/3=13 n=39n=LCM(3, 2+7+4)=39 \ \\ a=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ n=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ 39=6 \ \\ b=\dfrac{ 7 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ n=\dfrac{ 7 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ 39=21 \ \\ c=\dfrac{ 4 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ n=\dfrac{ 4 }{ 2+7+4 } \cdot \ 39=12 \ \\ d=n/3=39/3=13 \ \\ n=39



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
