## Answers : Math Puzzles and Riddles.

 Lets take R as red, G as green and B as blue. R + G + B = 60 As there are 4 times red marbles than green marbles, then R = 4G There are 6 more blue marbles than green marbles, so B = G + 6 Therefore, R + G + B = 60 4G + G + G + 6 = 60 6G + 6 = 60 6G = 60 - 6 6G = 54 G = 54/6 = 9 R = 4G = 4 x 9 = 36 B = G + 6 = 9 + 6 =15

Finally there are 9 green marbles, 36 red marbles and 15 blue marbles.
