CycleYesterday I went for a long bicycle ride around the local lakes. As the ride was quite long, I rode in various stages.

In the first stage I rode half of the overall distance.

Stage two saw half of the remaining distance plus 35 metres covered.

Stage three covered three-quarters of the remaining distance.

Stage four completed half of the remaining distance plus 75 metres.

Stage five completed the journey with a final burst of 150 metres.

How far did I cycle in total?

Practical Peter was asked to cut a 99 foot rope into three smaller, equal length ropes.

However, as usual, Pete couldn't find his measuring tape so he guessed!

When he finally did find his tape (it was under his hat), he discovered that:

A) the second piece of rope was twice as long as the first piece, minus 35 feet (i.e. 2 x first, - 35).
B) the third piece of rope was half the length of the first, plus 15 feet (i.e. 0.5 x first, + 15)

How long were each of the pieces of rope?
