Homework Help: Math word problem

Posted by Lauren on Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 9:27pm.

I know the answer, but is there a formula to show work?
Amy had a piece of wire 96 inches long. She cut the wire into 3 pieces. The second piece was 6 inches longer than the first piece. The third piece is 9 inches longer than the second. What was the length of each piece of wire?
The answers I got were 25,31,40. But it was from trial and error from 3/96=32
