Practical Peter was asked to cut a 99 foot rope into three smaller, equal length ropes. However, as usual, Pete couldn't find his measuring tape so he

guessed! When he finally did find his tape (it was under his hat), he discovered that: A) the second piece of rope was twice as long as the first piece, minus 35 feet (i.e. 2 x first, - 35). B) the third piece of rope was half the length of the first, plus 15 feet (i.e. 0.5 x first, + 15) How long were each of the pieces of rope?


After calculation,First = 34 feet. Second = 33 feet. Third = 32 feet.
