Separate 846 into 3 parts so that the second part is twice the first part and the third part is triple the second part.

Let x be the first part. The the second part would be 2x (double x). And, since the third part is triple the second part and the second part is 2x, then the third part is 6x. So:

x + 2x + 6x = 846

9x = 846

x = 846/9

x = 94

The first part is 94

The second part is 188

The third part is 564
