Use the numbers 5 , 10 , a n d 15 to make equations by filling in the boxes: x + = − . Each equation must use all three numbers.a. What is the largest possible solution of these equations?b. What is the smallest possible solution of these equations’?

a.

To determine

what is the largest possible solution of these equations?

Explanation

Given information : Use the numbers 5, 10 and 15 to make equation by filling in the boxes: x+= . Each equation must use all three numbers.

Calculation: We have to fill the boxes by 5, 10, and 15 in x+= .

We can fill the boxes as follows.

x+5=1015,x+5=1510,x+10=515,x+10=155,x+15=105,x+15=510

We can solve the above equations as follows.

x+5=1015=5x=55x=10,<

b.

To determine

what is the smallest possible solution of these equations?
