E = Eric
E + 2E = 18
3E = 18
E = 18/3
E = ?

Step 1: Eric = 1/2 of Dans; Eric + Dan = 18
Step 2: 12 + 6 = 18
Step 3: Eric has to be 6 because half of 12 is 6 and when you add them together you 18.
Step 4: Equation Part A: D = 12; E = 1/2D; T= 18.
Equation Part B: E + D = T
so... 1/2D + D = 18!!!!
enjoy!
