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)
