  1. 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
