Can someone help me please... Thanks
A new cruise ship line has just launched 3 new ships; the Pacific Paradise, the Carribean Paradise and the Mediterranean Paradise. The Carribean Paradise has 28 more deluxe staterooms than the Pacific Paradise. The Mediterranean Paradise has 29 fewer deluxe staterooms than four times the number of deluxe staterooms on the Pacific Paradise. Find the number of deluxe staterooms for each of the ships if the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 881.
The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms
The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe
