Positive integers

Several positive integers are written on the paper. Michaella only remembered that each number was half the sum of all the other numbers. How many numbers could be written on paper?

Correct result:

n =  3

Solution:

a=(b+c+d)/2 2a=b+c+d 2b=a+c+d+  s=a+b+c+d+ 3a=a+b+c+d+=s 3a=s 3b=s 3c=s  n=3



We would be very happy if you find an error in the example, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies, and please send it to us. We thank you!
