A 65 foot rope is cut into 3 pieces the second piece is 3 times the length of the first piece and the third piece is 5 feet more than eight times the first piece find the length for each piece
x = first piece
3x = second piece
8x + 5 = third piece summed , they equal = 65
x + 3x + 8x+5 = 65 <======= can you take it from here?
