You and two friends scored all 7 runs for your team in a baseball game. Jeff scored twice as many runs as you, and Mary scored twice as many runs as Jeff. How many runs did Jeff score?
runs scored by you --- x
runs scored by Jeff --- 2x
runs scored by Mary -- 2(2x) = 4x
Jeff scored 2(1) or 2 runs , (you had one and Mary had 4)
