During last week's visit to this same pear tree, Pete ate 3 times as many pears as Tweet, and Tweet ate 5 fewer pears than Honk. If together the boys ate 25 pears, how many pears did Honk eat during last week's visit?

T = (H5 )
P = 3 T so P = (3 H  15)
T + P + H = 25
(H5) +(H15) + H = 25
3 H  20 = 25
3 H = 45
H = 15 the end
