# Ball game

Richard, Denis and Denise together scored 932 goals. Denis scored 4 goals over Denise but Denis scored 24 goals less than Richard. Determine the number of goals for each player.

Result

d =  304
r =  328
s =  300

#### Solution:

r+d+s = 932
d = 4 + s
d = r - 24

d+r+s = 932
d-s = 4
d-r = -24

d = 304
r = 328
s = 300
