anita scored 18 less than miguel, cheri's score was 16 less than twice anita's, cheri outscored jake by 21.

if the total score by all four kids was 529, what was the final scores of the match?

M (Miguel) = M

A (Anita) = M - 18

C (Cheri)= 2(M - 18) - 16

J (Jake) = [2(M - 18) - 16] -21

529 = M+(M-18)+[2(M-18)-16]+[2(M-18)-16-21]

529 = 6M + 143

M = 112

A = 94

C = 172

J = 151
