Mr. Wade carries 3 more than 3 times as many different magazines as newspapers. He carries 85 different newspapers. How many different magazines does Mr. Wade carry?

Expert's answer

Let m be the number of different magazines and n=85 be the number of different newspapers.Then by the assumption

m = 3 + 3 n

= 3 + 3*85

= 3 + 255

= 288

Thus Mr. Wade carries 288 different magazines.

m = 3 + 3 n

= 3 + 3*85

= 3 + 255

= 288

Thus Mr. Wade carries 288 different magazines.
