 Mar 29, 2012 Word Problem - 3 Way Split by: Staff Answer: Total = Molly + Simon + Carlos = 100 Molly = 3*(Simon) Carlos = 2*(Molly) Molly + Simon + Carlos = 100 Molly + Simon + 2*(Molly)= 100 3*(Simon)+ Simon + 2*(3*(Simon))= 100 Solve for Simon 3*(Simon) + Simon + 2*[3*(Simon)] = 100 3*(Simon) + Simon + 6*(Simon) = 100 10*(Simon) = 100 10*(Simon) / 10 = 100 / 10 (Simon) * (10 / 10) = 100 / 10 (Simon) * (1) = 100 / 10 Simon = 100 / 10 Simon = 10 Solve for Molly Molly = 3*(Simon) Molly = 3*(10) Molly = 30 Solve for Carlos Carlos = 2*(Molly) Carlos = 2*(30) Carlos = 60 Check TOTAL Total = Molly + Simon + Carlos = 100 100 = Molly + Simon + Carlos 100 = 30 + 10 + 60 100 = 100 >>> final answer: Simon = 10 Carlos = 60 Molly = 30 Thanks for writing.
