N + 2N + 4/3N =(3 1/3)N+18, solve for N
N = 18 - pounds - Nathan's share
N + 2N + 4/3N = 78 - pounds in total
18 + 18 = 36 - pounds- Alisha's share
78 - 18 - 36 = 24 - pounds- Jordan's share.

3 :  6  :  4

 

Call Natnan's share   N

 

Alesha gets N + 18 

 

And Jordan gets  ( 4/3)N

 

And we know that

 

(N + 18) / [(4/3)N]  =  6 / 4          cross-multiply

 

4 ( N + 18)  = 6 (4/3)N

 

4N + 72  =  8N

 

72  =  4N

 

18  = N

 

So   Jordan gets   (4/3)N  = (4/3)(18)  =  24  pounds
