There are a mixture of red, green and blue balls in a bag. The total number of balls is 60. There are four times as many red balls as green balls; and 6 more blue balls than green balls. How many balls of each color are there?

See the answer by highlighting between the brackets:
<Answer: Blue=15, Red=36, Green=9
The algebraic equations that solve this problem are:
R+G+B=60
R=4G
B=G+6
