Beachcomber #1, found only a few seashells along the shore. Beachcomber #2 found 7 more than Beachcomber #1. Beachcomber #3 was the best of all. He found 5 -

more than Beachcomber #2. If all three Beachcombers found a total of 82 seashells, how many did Beachcomber #1 find?

Beachbomber #1=x
Beachbomber #2=x+7
Beachbomber #3=x+5+7

x+x+7+x+7+5=82

82-7-7-5=63

63:3=21
