b: blues; g: greens; r: reds b = r + g + 2 2b = 3r + 2g r + g + b = 22 First equation: b - 2 = r + g Third equation: b - 2 + b = 22 --> 2b = 24 --> b = 12 First equation: 12 = r + g + 2 --> r + g = 10 --> 3r + 3g = 30 Second equation: 24 = 3r + 2g --> 3r + 2g = 24 First equation - second equation: g = 6 6 + r = 10 --> r = 4 12 green, 4 red, 6 blue
