**PsyDAG**, Friday, June 19, 2009 at 11:29amFrom the information you provided:

Adam = x

Imram = x - 3

Shakeel = 2x

x + (x-3) + 2x = 39

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

**Quidditch**, Friday, June 19, 2009 at 11:38amLet x = Adam's points

Imram's ponts = x - 3

Shakeel's points = 2(Imram's points)

or 2(x-3)

totaling

x + (x - 3) + 2(x-3) = 39
