There are three times as many pepper plants as cucumber plants. 
There are twice as many tomato plants as pepper plants.

Answer: 48

Explanation:

 

Work backwards.

 

There are three times as many pepper plants as cucumber plants. There are 8 cucumber plants.

There are \(3*8=24\) pepper plants.

 

There are twice as many tomato plants as pepper plants. There are 24 pepper plants.

There are \(24*2=48\) tomato plants.

Pepper plant = 3 * cumcubers

                       3 * 8

                     => \(\boxed{24\ pepper\ plant}\)
Tomato plant = 2 * pepper

                        2 * 24

                      => \(\boxed{48}\)
