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

Let the number of sleevelesses be X

let the number of short sleeve be Y

Let the number of long sleeve be Z

9X + 12 Y + 15 Z= 66 *60

22X + 24Y + 28Z = 136* 60

6X + 8Y + 8Z = 40* 60

SOLVING YIELDS

x= 120

y=90

z= 120


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