let the three numbers be a , b , and and c
a+b+c=350

a/c = 2 ---> a = 2c or c = a/2

so a + b + a/2 = 350
3a + 2b = 700

b/a = 5 + 25/a
b= 5a + 25

in 3a + 2b=700
3a + 10a + 50 = 700
13a = 650
a = 50
b = 275
c = 25

check:
50+275+35 = 350 , check!
50/25 = 2 , check
275/50 = 5.5 = 5 + 25/50 = 5 + remainder of 25 , check
