Let's use variables to represent the number of game cards each person has: Let L represent the number of game cards Lucas has. Let J represent the number of game cards James has. Let O represent the number of game cards Oliver has. We are given the following information: 1. Lucas, James, and Oliver have a total of 370 game cards: L + J + O = 370 2. James has twice as many game cards as Lucas: J = 2L 3. Oliver has 25 more game cards than James: O = J + 25 Now, we can substitute the expressions for J and O from (2) and (3) into the first equation: L + (2L) + (2L + 25) = 370 Combine the like terms: 5L + 25 = 370 Now, subtract 25 from both sides of the equation: 5L = 345 Finally, divide both sides by 5 to find the number of game cards Lucas has: L = 69 Now that we found the number of game cards Lucas has, we can use the second equation to find the number of game cards James has: J = 2L = 2(69) = 138 So, James has 138 game cards.
