Q:
# Dennis thought of a number. He adds 0.5 to that number and then multiplies the new result by 4. He then subtracts 2 and divides the number by 2. His final answer is 48. What number did Dennis start with?

Accepted Solution

A:

Let the x be the number

So,

(4(x+0.5)-2)/2=48

So,

x=24 is the number.

So,

(4(x+0.5)-2)/2=48

So,

x=24 is the number.
