Three friends

Peter is eight times older than Rado, Rado is 3 times younger than Joseph. Together they have 120 years. Determine how many are each of them.

Correct answer:

P =  80
R =  10
J =  30

Step-by-step explanation:


P=8•R
R = J/3
P+R+J= 120

P-8R = 0
J-3R = 0
J+P+R = 120

J = 30
P = 80
R = 10
