The Marauders fooseball team is improving with each game. The first game they scored no points, but the second game they scored some goals. In their third game they scored 8 more points than the second. Now in their last game they scored three times as many points as their third. Altogether they scored 117 points!!! How many points did the Marauders score in the third game?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The equation for the above can be stated as,

x+(8+x)+3(8+x)=117

x+8+x+24+3x=117

5x=117-32

5x=85

x=17

so in the third game they scored, 8+17=25 points

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
