Homework Help: Math

Posted by John on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 6:04pm.

Monday, Mr. C stacked a display case of 80 heads of lettuce. By end of day, some were sold.

Tuesday Mr. C counted lettuce left and decided to add an equal number of lettuce (**hint - he doubled the leftovers).  At end of Tuesday, he sold the same number as Monday.

Wednesday Mr. C tripled lettuce left. He sold the same number that day too. At end of day, there were no lettuce left.

How manylettuce were sold each day?

Please help, I would appreciate guidance on this.
Thx
