Let&#039;s make such denotations:

Let&#039;s formalize the problem statements now:

The caribbean paradise has 27 more deluxe staterooms than the Pacific Paradise, so

C = P + 27.

The Mediterranean Paradise has 32 fewer deluxe staterooms than four times the number of deluxe staterooms of the pacific paradise, so

M = 4P - 32.

At last, the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 1153, so

P + C + M = 1153.

Here we got the system of equations:

C = P + 27,& (1)
M = 4P - 32,& (2)
P + C + M = 1153. (3)

Let&#039;s solve it.
substituting C from (1) and M from (2) to (3) we obtain:
P + P + 27 + 4P - 32 = 1153
6P = 1158
P = 193.

Then,
C = P + 27 = 193 + 27 = 220
and
M = 4P - 32 = 4*193 - 32 = 740.
