(a) 18
18 / 3 = 6
6 + 5 = 11
18 - 11 = 7
18 / 2 = 9
[latex]7 \neq 9[/latex]

(b) 24
24 / 3 = 8
8 + 5 = 13
24 - 13 = 11
24 / 2 = 12
[latex]11 \neq 12[/latex]

(c) 30
30 / 3 = 10
10 + 5 = 15
30 - 15 = 15
30 / 2 = 15
[latex]15 = 15[/latex]

(d) 48
48 / 3 = 16
16 + 5 = 21
48 - 21 = 27
48 / 2 = 24
[latex]27\neq 24[/latex]

(e) 60
60 / 3 = 20
20 + 5 = 25
60 - 25 = 35
60 / 2 = 30
[latex]35 \neq 30[/latex]

Answer: (c) $30
