If one-half of one integer is subtracted from three-fifths of the next consecutive integer, the difference is 3. What are the two integers?

Thanks

How about (3/5)a - a/2 = 3.

Solve for a.

(3/5)(a+1) - a/2 = 3
3a/5 + 3/5 - a/2 = 3

Multiply through by 10....if you can't finish, talk to your teacher :shock:
