A number is as much greater than 17 as it is less than 47. find the number

Dear Student!

Let the number be* x.*

The number is greater than 17 by *x *– 17.

The number is less than 47 by 47 – *x.*

∴ *x *–17 = 47 – *x*

*⇒ x + x* = 47 + 17 (Transposing* x* to LHS and 17 to RHS )

Thus, the required number is 32.

Cheers!
