A piece of wire \( 205 \) inches long will be cut ...

A piece of wire \( 205 \) inches long will be cut into three pieces for an art sculpture. The length of the shortest wire is one-third the length of the midsize wire, and the length of the longest wire is \( 8 \) inches more than two times the length of the midsize wire. The following equation can be used to determine \( x \) , the length of the midsize wire, in inches. 

 

\(\frac { 1 } { 3 } x + ( 2 x + 8 ) + x = 205\)

 

Which number represents the length, in inches, of the midsize wire?

 

 (A) \( 49.25 \)     (B) \( 53.25 \)      (C) \( 59.1 \)            (D) \( 63.9\) 

Answer

x=59.1
