Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are 500 pieces of paper. Bob uses X amount and therefore at that point the amount remaining would be 500 minus that X amount or 500X. If Mike uses twice as much as Bob then he is using 2X and therefore there is 500  X  2X. Pete then uses half of the amount that Mike used, which was 2X, meaning he used X. Leaving 500  X  2X X. When when combine like terms we get 500  4X.
