Question

# A number increased by negative twenty-seven is 110.find the number

Answer

137

- Let's assume the number is x.
- If we increase x by -27, we get x - 27.
- The problem states that x - 27 is equal to 110.
- To find the value of x, we can add 27 to both sides of the equation: x - 27 + 27 = 110 + 27.
- The equation simplifies to x = 137.
