Three purses 
20060522 

From Marcee: If you take $20 from the first and put it into the second of three purses, the second would then contain 4 times as much as remains in the first. If $60 of what is now in the second is put into the third, the third will contain twice what is in the first and second together. Now, if $40 be removed from the third and put into the first, there will be half as much as in the third. What did each purse originally hold? Answered by Penny Nom.
