In a basketball game, Garrett and Logan scored a total of 19 points. Logan and Ray scored a total of 14 points. Logan scored as many points as Garrett and Ray together. How many points did each player score?

Logan______ Garrett______ Ray_____

G + L = 19, therefore G = 19-L

L + R = 14, therefore R = 14-L

L = G + R

Substitute into last equation and solve for L.

L = (19-L) + (14-L)
