A reservation clerk worked 12.6 hours one day. She spent twice as much time entering new reservations as she did verifying old ones and a half as much time calling to confirm reservations as verifying old ones. How much time did she spend entering new reservations?

x + 2x + 0.5x = 12.6
3.5x = 12.6
x = 3.6
2 * 3.6 = 7.2
