Mike runs twice as far as Jim, but Phillip runs three times as far as Jim. If the three of them run a total of 24 miles, how far does each man run?

2m + j = 24

3p + j = 24

I am so wrong aren't I? Can someone help me, please??

M=2J

P=3J

M+P+J=24

x = chocolate

y = plain

z = jelly

y = 3x

z = 1/2x

x + y + z = 40

How was that???
