Question

11. (3) Let the second number be ( 6 x ). Then, first number ( =3 x )
and third number ( =2 x )
According to the question, ( frac{6 x+3 x+2 x}{3}=44 )
( Rightarrow quad frac{11 x}{3}=44 )
( Rightarrow quad x=12 )
Thus, the smallest number ( =2 x=2 times 12=24 )

# 11. Of the three numbers, second is twice the first and is also thrice the third. If the average of three numbers be 44, find the smallest number. (1) 12 (3) 24 (4) 16 (2) 8
