1. C --> y
S --> 3 y
J --> 3 y + 50

y + 3 y + 3 y + 50 = 7 y + 50

2. 50*3 equals 150. 150+50 equals 200. 150+150+200 equals 400.

4. 7y+50 is how much they save. There's no base amount for any person so this equation of the total is how far you can take the problem. (The above answer of 400 makes the assumption that y ever equaled 50 but that was not stated anywhere in the initial problem.)
