Does this look right?
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??

TastyBake bakery sells three times as many chocolate donuts as plain glazed donuts, but only half as many as jelly-filled donuts. If they sold 40 dozen donuts, how many of each type did they sell?
x = chocolate
y = plain
z = jelly
y = 3x
z = 1/2x
x + y + z = 40
How was that???
