    From the information you provided:

    Adam = x
    Imram = x - 3
    Shakeel = 2x

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

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

    Let 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
