A box has orange, green, and brown beads. There are 8 more orange beads than green beads. There are twice as many brown beads as orange. There are 96 beads in all. How many orange beads are there?
g = green beads
o = orange beads = g + 8
b = brown beads = 2 * o = 2 (g+8) summed = 96
g + g+8 + 2 (g+8) = 96
solve for g then o = g+8 and b = 2 (g+8)
