Total number of empty cans = 1925

Let Ryan collects

therefore , Anne collects

Joel collects

we know that ,

Cans collected by Ryan + Cans Collected by Anne + Cans collected by Joel =total number of empty cans.

=> x + x/2 + 2x = 1925

=> 3x + x/2 = 1925

=> ( 2*3x + x )/2 = 1925

=> 6x + x = 2*1925

=> 7x = 3850

=> x = 3850/7

=>

Hence cans Collected by Ryan = x= 550

Cans collected by Anne = x/2 =

Cans collected by Joel = 2x =

Hope this helps You!!

Thank YOu!!

Cheers !!

therefore, coins collected by Anne = 1/2 x = 0.5 x

and coins collected by Joel = 2x

According to the question:

x + 0.5 x + 2 x = 1925

=> x = 550

Cans collected by jole = 550 * 2 = 1100
