In a basketball game, Garrett and Logan scored a total of 19 points. Logan and Ray scored a total of 14 points. Logan scored as many points as Garrett and Ray together. How many points did each player score?
Logan______ Garrett______ Ray_____
G + L = 19, therefore G = 19L
L + R = 14, therefore R = 14L
L = G + R
Substitute into last equation and solve for L.
L = (19L) + (14L)

Your logic is right. Solve for L, the G and R.
