**Reiny**, Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 7:46pmIs the caplock key stuck on your keyboard?

At first:

Naomi --- x

Macy ---- y

Sebastian -- 234 -x - y

After the giving:

Naomi --- x-16 - 24

Macy --- y + 16

Sebastian --- 234-x-t + 24

x-16-24 = 3(y+16) ---> x - 3y = 88

y+16 = 2(234-x-y+24) --> 2x + 3y = 500

add them:

3x = 588

x = 196

then in x-3y=88

196-3y=88

-3y=-108

y = 36

Naomi had 196

Macy had 36

Sebastian had 2
