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??

You are so wrong.
M=2J
P=3J
M+P+J=24

TastyBake bakery sells three times as many chocolate donuts as plain glazed donuts, but only half as many as jellyfilled 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???

NO.
C=3P
J=1/2 P
J+C+P=40
