The weight he lost in the first month : 1/3(W-G) + 3 The weight he lost in the second month : 2/9(W-G)+2 The weight he lost in the third month:4/27(W-G)+4/3

Reuben was successful in losing weight. He had a
goal weight in mind. He went on a diet for three months. Each month, he would
lose one-third of the difference between his current weight and his goal weight
and an additional three pounds. At the end of three months, he was just 3 pounds
over his goal weight. How many pounds did he lose in those three months
