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

3=66

Let employee 3 be x

then employee 1 will 2x and employee 2 (twice) will be 3x (three times faster)

the whole equation= X + 2X + 3X = 66

6X =66

X=11

Second most productive employee packed 22 items.

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