**Answer:**

The number is 18

**Step-by-step explanation:**

You can write an equation to represent this. Let x represent the unknown number.

3x - 18 = 2x

Move 2x to the left side. Remember, "change the side, change the sign." Add 0 as a placeholder to the right of the equals sign.

3x - 2x - 18 = 0

Simplify like terms.

x - 18 = 0

Move -18 to the right of the equals sign.

x = 18

Now that we know x = 18, we can substitute it into the problem.

"Eighteen less than three times **18** is two times **18**."

18 x 3 = 54

54 - 18 = 36

36 is, in fact, two times 18. We can check this by dividing 36 by 2.

36 ÷ 2 = **18**

**Answer:**

1 1/2

**Step-by-step explanation:**

one and a half because you have a half leftover and 1 whole

Umm...60 grams.

1.5 grams is equal to 1 tablespoon of hummus.

Since 16 tablespoons are in a cup, you'd have to multiply the 1.5 grams per tablespoon by 16 to find the amount of fat in grams are in a cup.

You'll get 24 grams as an answer.

Since you're trying to find the amount of grams in 2.5 (2 1/2) cups of hummus, you just multiply 24 by 2.5 to get the overall answer of **<u>60 grams.</u>**<u />

A =

This is just a simple division problem. To make your life easier, make them both into improper fractions, 254/5 and 4/1. Use reciprocals to multiply. 254/5 * 1/4. Then you get 127/10, which simplifies to 12 7/10 as your answer.
