Mary, Peter, and Lucy were picking chestnuts. Mary picked twice as many chestnuts than Peter. Lucy picked 2 kg more than Peter. Together the three of them picked 26 kg of chestnuts. How many kilograms did each of them pick?

P

L = P+2

M = 2P         Summed = 26 kg

 

P     +   P+2     + 2P = 26

4P = 24

P = 6      L = 8    M = 12
