4 D=C - 60
5 If D=0, print "you found the number X which make the figure equal 60", go to step 8
6 If D<0, print "Number X make the figure "D" less than 60, try again by increasing X", go to step 2
7 Print "Number X make the figure "D" more than 60, try again by decreasing X", go to step 2

function getBaseNum(num) {
return num / (5-2);
}
num = 60
60 / (5-2)
60 / 3 = 20
(20 * 5) - (20 * 2)
100 - 40 = 60
