Question

I have x oranges. My friend has 3 less than 2 times the number of oranges I have. My friend has oranges

- 3x
- 2x3
- 2x−3
- 3x+2

Solution

The correct option is **C** 2x−3

My friend has 3 less than 2 times the number of oranges I have

If the number of oranges with me = x,

then the number of oranges with my friend = 2×x−3=2x−3

My friend has 3 less than 2 times the number of oranges I have

If the number of oranges with me = x,

then the number of oranges with my friend = 2×x−3=2x−3
