Let x be the number of cans of food Peyton collected so that Allie collected x+15 and Ling collected $(x+15)+8=x+23$ cans of food. Given that Ling collected 72 cans of food, we can write:

$x+23=72$

Solve for xx. Subtract 23 from both sides:

$x=49$

So, Peyton collected 4949 and Allie collected$49+15=6449+15=64$ cans of food. Overall, they collected a total of:

$49+64+72=185$ cans of food

Solve for xx. Subtract 23 from both sides:

So, Peyton collected 4949 and Allie collected
