belle bought packages of beads for her project.ben bought twice as many packages as belle.micalla bought three times as many packages as belle.altogether,they bought 24 packages of beads.how many packages did each person buy?

Let x = the number of packages that Belle bought.
x + 2x + 3x = 24
6x = 24
x = 4
Bella bought 4 packages.
I'm sure you can figure out how many the others bought.
