Sara travels twice as far as eli when going to camp.  Ashley travels as far as sara and eli together.  Hazel travels 3 times as far as sara.  in total, all four travel a total of 888 miles to camp.  How far do each of them travel?

Let sara travels x miles

then eli travels = x/2 miles

Ashley travels = x+x/2 = 1.5 x

Hazel travels = 3x miles

All four travels = 888 miles

so, x + x/2 + 1.5 x + 3x = 888

6x = 888 miles

x = 888 / 6 miles

x = 148 miles

so, sara travels 148 miles

sara travels, x = 148 miles

eli travels, x/2 = 74 miles

Ashley travels, 1.5 x = 222 miles

Hazel travels = 444 miles
