What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

## Explanation

• The sum of three numbers is 264.
• If the first number be twice the second number.
• The third number be one-third of the first.
• The second number will be figure out in this way.

Let suppose the second number is y.

First number be twice the second number

First number = 2y

Third number be one-third of the first

Third number = 2y/3

The sum of three numbers is 264

2y + y + 2y/3 = 264 ________ (i)

Through equation (i) we can easily find out the value of y (y = 72) which is required second number.

## To Find

Second Number = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Second Number = y

According to the given condition

2y + y + 2y/3 = 264

6y + 3y + 2y = 792

11y = 792

y = 792/11

y = 72

## Conclusion

The sum of three numbers is 264. If the first number be twice the second number and the third number be one-third of the first, then the second number will be 72.
