I am thinking of a number. I multiplied by 3, subtracted by 8, doubled the result, and added 14. Then i added on 50% of what I had and subtracted 11. Then i divided by 5. After all that, I was left with 8.
What number did i start with?
You started with 6. 8*5=40, 40+11=51, 2/3*51=34, 34-14=20, 20/2=10, 10+8=18, 18/3=6.
