3-6.

Ms. Nguyen needs to separate $\385$ into three parts to pay some debts. The second part must be five times as large as the first part. The third part must be $\35$ more than the first part. How much money must be in each part? Write and solve an equation.

Use $2$ or $3$ of the blue numbers at the right as guesses for the first part and calculate the second and third part.
 First Part Second Part $=5 ^* \text{ first}$ Third Part $=35 + \text{ first}$ Total $=385$ $\$$\$$\$
