restrictions force it to make 10 more type C clamps than the total of the other types

and twice as many type B clamps as type A clamps. The shop must produce 250 clamps per day.

How many of each type are made per day?

How many type A clamps are produced?

How many type B clamps are produced?

How many type C clamps are produced?

c = 10 + (a+b)

b = 2a

rearrange things a bit:

a + b + c = 250

-a - b + c = 10

-2a + b = 0

add the top two to get

2c = 260

c = 130

a+b-130 = -10

a+2a-130 = -10

3a = 120

a = 40

b = 80
