Pierce has 3 dogs.  Spot, Boone, and Lex.  All 3 dogs weigh together 199 pounds.  Spot weighs 45 pounds more than Boone.  Lex weighs 32 pounds less than Boone.  How many pounds does each dog weigh?  Write equations to represent and solve this problem.

Boone =x

spot= x + 45

lex = x-32

 

summed, they equal 199

x      +     x+45      +        x-32   =  199

3x = 186

x = 62= Boone      Spot = 62+45      Lex =   62-32
