a bag of jelly beans has a total of 112 white, blue, and red jelly beans. There are 4 more than twice as many blue jelly beans than red jelly beans. There are 12 more white jelly beans than red jelly beans. How many blue, red, and white jelly beans are there in the bag?

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

let the number of red bean be x, then number of white bean is x+12, blue bean is 2x+4, and 

x+x+12+2x+4 = 112 

4x = 112-16 = 96

x = 24

red bean is 24, white bean is 36 and blue bean is 52 

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