Hi Buneka,

Let Darcy has money=x

Jason has $20 more than Darcy

Jason =20+x

Maria has twice as much money as Jason

Maria = 2(20+x)=40+2x

Darcy,Jason and Maria share $268

x+20+x+40+2x=268

4x+60=268

4x=208

x=52

So Darcy has money=$52

Jason has money=20+x=20+52=$72

Darcy and Jason have altogether=$(52+72)=$124
