1. C+1=J
L+5=2J

C+L+J<=24

J-1+2J-5+J<=24
4J<=30
J<=7
so C is 6
and L is 9

total 22 check that.

2. X+(X-1)+(2X-5)=24

use X for the amount of outfits Jane has.

you know:
-that Charlie packs 1 less than Jane (x-1)
-that Loretta packs 5 less than twice Jane's (2x-5)
-that you can't have more than 24. so set it equal to 24

and then solve :)
