1. Answer:

The message send by each person

Message sent by Ryan is 20

Message sent by Kira is 12

Message send by John is 80

Step-by-step explanation:

Given as :

The total number of messages sent y three people Kira , John , Ryan = 112

Kira sent 8 fewer messages than Ryan.

John sent 4 times as many messages as Ryan.

Let The message sent by Kira = K

The message sent by John = J

The message sent by  Ryan = R

So, According to question

K + J + R = 112

And K = R -8

And  J = 4 × R

So, ( R – 8 ) + 4 × R + R = 112

or , R + 4 R + R = 112 + 8

Or,  6 R = 120

or , R =

I.e R = 20

So, Message sent by Ryan = R = 20

Similarly K = R – 8

I.e K = 20 – 8 = 12

Or , K = 12

So, Message sent by Kira = K = 12

And J = 4 × R

I.e J = 4 × 20

or, J = 80

So, the message send by John = J = 80

Hence The message send by each person

Message sent by Ryan is 20

Message sent by Kira is 12

Message send by John is 80 Answer

2. Answer:

The number of messages sent by Ryan is 20 and by Kira is 12 and by John is 80.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given,

Total number of messages = 112

Solution,

Let the number  of messages sent by Ryan be x.

So the number  of messages sent by Kira =

And the number  of messages sent by John = 4x

The total number of messages is sum of messages sent by all of them.

Total number of messages = number  of messages sent by Ryan +  number  of messages sent by Kira + number  of messages sent by John

Which is represented by the equation as;

Hence the number of messages sent by Ryan is 20 and by Kira is 12 and by John is 80.
