Terri, Corey and Chris together made 20 baskets in a basketball game. Terry made 5 more than Corey. Chris made 3 times more baskets then Corey. How many baskets did they each have?

  • math -

    Terri's baskets = x
    Corey's baskets = y
    Chris' baskets = z

    x + y + z = 20
    x = y + 5
    z = 3y

    (y+5) + y + 3y = 20
    5y = 15

    Solve for y and then do the others using formulas you have.
