how much money did they have at the beginning?

  • math -

    In the beginning: Minette had T, Mark had K, and Michelle had L.

    After step 1: Minette had (T-K-L), Mark had 2K and Michelle had 2L.

    After step 2: Minette had (2T-2K-2L), Mark had 4K and Michelle had (3L-T-K).

    Solve 3 simultaneous equations of 3 variables:
    2T - 2K - 2L = 24.00
    4K = 24.00
    -T - K + 3L = 24.00
