3. $26 4.$ 28

5. $30 $$J : S : T = x : 2x : ( 2x + 30)$$ So, $$x + 2x + 2x + 30 = 150$$ Or, $$5x = 120$$ Or, $$x = 24$$, So Jill pays$ 24, Answer must be (2)

J+S+T = 150

J = x
S = 2x
T = 30+2x

So, x+2x+30+2x=150

=> 5x+30 = 150
=>5x=120
=>x=120/5
=>x=24

OA: B

Let the Jijil's rent share be $$x$$.

Rent share of Savy = $$2* x$$

Rent share of Tes = $$2* x+ 30$$

Jijil's rent + Savy's rent + Tes's rent = $$150$$

$$x + 2* x +2* x+ 30 =  150$$

$$5* x +  30 =  150$$

$$5* x =  150 -  30 = 120$$

Jijil's rent $$= x =\frac{ 120}{5} =  24$$
