Terri, Corey and Chris together made 20 baskets in a basketball game. Terry made 5 more than Corey. Chris made 3 times more baskets then Corey. How many baskets did they each have?

Terri's baskets = x
Corey's baskets = y
Chris' baskets = z
x + y + z = 20
x = y + 5
z = 3y
(y+5) + y + 3y = 20
5y = 15
Solve for y and then do the others using formulas you have.
