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 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???

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

    J+C+P=40
