Mirette wants to plant bulbs in patterned rows in her garden. Each row will have 12 plants alternating in this pattern: red tulip, yellow tulip, yellow tulip, white tulip. If she plants 8 rows, how many bulbs of each color will she need?

each 4 plants is 1 red, 2 yellow, 1 white
so
each 12 plant row has
3 red , 6 yellow , 3 white
now multiply by 8 rows

if for one row she needs 3red 6yellow and 3white, then for 8rows, 8x3 8x6 and
8x3= 24, 48, 24. :)
