Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
i have no idea what you did but i shifted the chain until it reached 10 8 6 and got E
I have no idea why you shifted the chain to 10 8 6 but both of us solved the problem correctly.
And I have no idea what you all did and still can't solve the problem.
Is anyone able to explain with more details?
The long way is plugging in numbers for a > b > c, Remember they are consecutive positive even integers CBA could be 2,4,6 or 4, 6, 8 or 6, 8, 10 and so on. Then you plug into a - b - c. The first two sets of numbers aren't in the answers so this is why I say it's the LONG way.
I would use the formula provided above by maratikus. It says A (the largest number) is 2N, then B would be 2N-2 (b/c it's consecutive even), Then that would make the smallest number C, 2N-4. Then you'd plug in ABC into formula as seen below. Hope this helps.
a = 2n (n>=3), b = 2n - 2, c = 2n - 4
a -b -c = 2n - (2n-2) - (2n-4) = 6 - 2n <= 0 since n >=3 , even -> E
If a, b, and c are consecutive positive even integers and a > b > c, which of the following could be equal to a - b - c ?
