# Three Numbers in France

I wish to find three numbers of such nature that the first and the second with $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of the third makes 20, and the second and the third with $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of the first comes to 20, and the third plus the first and $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of the second also equals 20.
