# I have this problem abouth math pre algebra this is my problem

I have 3 number that makes a total of 11 I have 1

4

6=11 in each way has to came out 11 up down side across and I have 2 more blanck spaces total of 3 its big square need help and I cant use the same numbers over again ?

5 + 4 + 2 = 11

6 + 4 + 1 = 11

7 + 3 + 1 = 11

8 + 2 + 1 = 11

once u know which numbers show up most often u know which number goes in the center and then it should be really easy

## To solve this problem, we need to find three numbers that add up to 11. We are given that one of the numbers is 1, so we need to find the other two numbers.

To make it easier, let's organize the numbers in a square format, with 3 rows and 3 columns:

```

_ _ _

_ 1 _

_ _ _

```

We have two empty spaces left. To find the other two numbers, we need to consider all possible combinations of two distinct numbers that add up to 10, because 11 minus 1 (the number we already have) equals 10.

We can start by trying different combinations. Let's begin with 2 and 8:

```

_ _ _

_ 1 _

2 _ 8

```

Now, we need to find a number that, when added to 2 and 8, will give us 10. In this case, the number is 0. So, the second row would look like this:

```

_ _ _

_ 1 _

2 0 8

```

Now, let's try another combination, 3 and 7:

```

_ _ _

_ 1 _

3 _ 7

```

Again, we need to find a number that, when added to 3 and 7, will give us 10. In this case, the number is 0. So, the third row would look like this:

```

_ _ _

_ 1 _

3 0 7

```

These are just two possible combinations. You can try other combinations as well, such as 4 and 6, or 5 and 5, until you find three numbers that add up to 11.

Remember, once you know which numbers are showing up most often, you can determine which number goes in the center of the square. From there, it should be easier to find the other two numbers that complete the square and add up to 11.
