Q:
# The difference between two integers is 32.The ratio of these integers is 1:3.Find these integers

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:16 and 48Step-by-step explanation:let the 2 integers be x and 3x ← ratio 1 : 3Then3x - x = 32 ← difference between the integers 2x = 32 ( divide both sides by 2 )x = 16and 3x = 3 × 16 = 48 Since magnitude of difference is 32We can also express the difference asx - 3x = 32- 2x = 32 ( divide both sides by - 2 )x = - 16and 3x = 3 × - 16 = - 48The 2 integers are 16 and 48 or - 16 and - 48
