Is the caplock key stuck on your keyboard?
At first:
Naomi  x
Macy  y
Sebastian  234 x  y
After the giving:
Naomi  x16  24
Macy  y + 16
Sebastian  234xt + 24
x1624 = 3(y+16) > x  3y = 88
y+16 = 2(234xy+24) > 2x + 3y = 500
add them:
3x = 588
x = 196
then in x3y=88
1963y=88
3y=108
y = 36
Naomi had 196
Macy had 36
Sebastian had 2
