  2. Eq1: D + C = 24kg
    Eq2: D + R = 20kg
    Eq3: C + R = 10kg

    Subtract Eq2 from Eq1:
    D + C = 24
    D + R = 20
    Diff: C-R = 4
    R = C-4

    In Eq3, replace R with C-4:
    C + C-4 = 10
    2C = 14
    C = 7 kg

    In Eq1, replace C with 7:
    D + 7 = 24
    D = 17 kg

    R = C-4 = 7-4 = 3 kg

    C + D + R = 7 + 17 + 3 = 27 kg.
