If Jijil pays $j, the other two people pay$2j and $2j + 30. These three amounts sum to$150, so

j + 2j + 2j + 30 = 150
5j = 120
j = 24

B. $24 C.$ 26
D. $28 E.$ 30

$$j + s + t = 150$$

$$s = 2j$$

$$t = s + 30$$

$$j + s + t = 150$$

Or,$$j + 2j + ( 2j + 30) = 150$$

Or, $$5j + 30 = 150$$

Or, $$5j = 120$$

Or, $$j = 24$$, Hence Answer must be (B)
