I Need help with the following question:
If moe has 3x as many singles as larry, and Larry has 4X as many doubles as curly. How many singles and doubles did they each have. They only got singles and doubles. They all had the same number of singles and doubles and the total hits for all 3 was under 200

Since you know that they all had the same number of singles and doubles, you have only three unknowns to solve for. Let x be the number of singles (and doubles) for Mo, y be that number for Larry, and z be that number for Curly
x = 3y
y = 4z
2x + 2y + 2z < 200
6y + 2y + y/2 < 200
8.5 y < 200
y<23
x, y, and z must be integers. See what combinations will work.
