Jenn has half the Beanie Babies that Mollie has. Allison has 3 times as many as Jenn. Together they have 72. How many Beanie Babies does each girl have?

Open Calculator

Answer

If Mollie has twice as many Beanie Babies as Jenn and Allison has 3 times as many as Jenn, then the total of 72 must be divided by 6. 72/6=12. Therefore: Jenn has 12 Beanie Babies, Mollie has 24 Beanie Babies, and Allison has 36 Beanie Babies.
