Sum Of Three
Three different positive integers add to make sixteen. The two smallest numbers add to make the biggest number. How many different solutions can you find?
Let the integers be a, b and c such that a b c.
Therefore a + b + c = 16.
But a + b = c, so c + c = 2c = 16, hence c = 8.
So solutions are: (1,7,8), (2,6,8) and (3,5,8)
