**jai**, Thursday, October 28, 2010 at 9:59pmif 8 marbles are blue then

28 - 8 = 20 are green and red marbles

then if we let x = the number of green marbles,

then the number of red marbles is 3 times the number of green marbles, or 3*x,, and their total sum must be 20:

x + 3*x = 20

combining similar terms,

4x = 20

now solve for x. then get the number of red marbles by multiplying it by 3.
