Given:total marbles = 100
         (red = r ; yellow = y ; white = w ; green = g)
           r
            y=r/2
           w = 2+r
           g = y+5 = r/2+5
           b = 18 + g = 18 + r/2 + 5

therefore,
      r+2 + r + r/2 + r/2+5 +18+r/2+5 =100
2r + 30 + 3r/2 = 100
5r + 30 = 100 * 2
5r + 30 = 200
5r = 200 - 30
5r = 170
r = 170/5
r = 34 marbles

hence, 
          red marbles = 34
          yellow marbles = 34/2 = 17 
         white marbles = 34 + 2 = 36
         green marbles = 34/2 + 5 = 22
        blue marbles = 18 + 34/2 + 5 = 40

hope ur problem is solved.........
