# Answer

If a number is tripled, it gives the same result as when 28 is added to it. Find the number?

Let's define x as the number that we want to tripple: 3x

If we get the same result by adding it to 28 therefore: 28 + x = 3x

28 = 3x - x ; 28 = 2x ; x = 28 / 2 ; **x = 14**

To check the answer:

3 x 14 = 42 and 28 + 14 = 42 same answer.

So definetly **the number is "14"**
