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
