I have 200 dollars to split between 3 teams. Second place gets twice as much as third place and first gets 15 dollars more than second place. Can someone please help me with the formula?

the formula: x+2x+(2x+15)=200 [where x is the amount 3rd place get] 5x+15=200 x=37 therefore, 2nd place wil get, 2x=2*37=74 and 1st place gets 2x+15=74+15=89
