Homework Help: Ratio

Posted by Mary on Friday, November 28, 2008 at 5:51am.

I had a total of 129 marbles in 3 boxes at first. Then I threw away 2/3 of the marbles from Box 1, added 15 marbles to Box 2, and added marbles to Box 3 until the numbers in box 3 tripled. As a result the number of marbles in box 1 to the number in Box 2 to the number of marbles in box 3 became 2:3:9 Wat is the total number of marbles in the 3 boxes?
