A girl scout troop sold cookies. If the girls sold 5 more boxes the second week than they did the first, and if they doubled the sales of the second week for the third week to sell a total of 431 boxes of cookies, how many did they sell each week?

    Say x is the number of boxes sold in week 1, then:

    Boxes in week 1: x
    Boxes in week 2: x + 5
    Boxes in week 3: 2x + 10

    Total boxes = 4x + 15
    4x + 15 = 431
    x = 104

    So in week 1 there was sold
    x = 104
    in week 2:
    x + 5 = 109
    in week 3:
    2x + 10 = 218
