In a game wizard is twice as powerful as an elf,an elf is 5 time as powerful as a trall,and a troll is one and half times as powerful as a dwarf. How many times more powerful than adwarf is a wizard?

This is the English section.

Maths questions need to be asked in the Maths section.

Mods could you move this to Maths pls. Thanks DG

In the meantime, just work backwards through the values :)

I doubt the op did it knowingly dg, probably just clicked on wrong section!
I have done it many a time, all sorts end up scattered.

I have moved the query to Maths now, (hopefully)

The only way I can approach these things is by giving each item a value.

Eg, make wizard 60. What would that make elf? And so on.

How about the following

W = 2E

E = 5T

T = 1.5D

So W = 2 * 5 * 1.5 D
= 15 D

Wizard is 15 times more powerful than dwarf

Like Toadmum said, easiest to work backwards and start with the dwarf.

So D = 1
T = 1.5 etc.

Algebra is not needed here - it's easiest to work backwards with numbers from a dwarf.

I'm glad that my suggestion turned out to be your way this time :) . Although momentarily having forgotten that a dwarf was part of the question I wondered why one would have to find one to get numbers from it :roll:

It has been a long day...
