Player Two: 2y
Player Three: 2z
In the second round:
Player One: 2(x-y-z)
Player Two: 2y - (x-y-z) - 2z
Player Three: 4z
In the third round:
Player One: 4(x-y-z)
Player Two: 2(2y - (x-y-z) - 2z)
Player Three: 4z - (2y - (x-y-z) - 2z) - (2(x-y-z))
So my equations are:
4x-4y-4z = 24
-2x + 6y +2z = 24
-x-y+7z = 24
So my matrix is:
4 -4 -4 24
-2 6 2 24
-1 -1 7 24
I then used the Gauss Jordan elimination, but my answers ended up beign negative and not making sense. I don't have much time right now, but I'll try using different row operations to see if it works, but maybe my equation system is wrong.
