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?

math 
Ms. Sue,
Let b = Belle's purchase
b + 2b + 3b = 24
6b = 24
b = 4
I'm sure you can finish this problem.
