Number of three types of soda's can bought by Tameka that is grapes, colas and oranges are 15, 23 and 12 respectively.

Solution:

Total numbers of sodas cans bought by Tameka = 50

Three types of cans are colas, grape and orange.

Let's assume number of grape cans = x

Given that Tameka has 8 more colas can than grapes.

So number of colas can = 8 + number of grapes can = 8 + x

Also orange cans are 3 less than grape cans.

So number of orange cans = number of grape cans - 3 = x - 3

Total number of cans = number of grape cans + number of colas cans + number of orange cans

= (x) + (8 + x) + (x - 3) = 3x + 5

And Total number of cans is 50, it means

3x + 5 = 50

On solving above equation of one variable, we get

3x = 50 - 5 = 45

x = 15

Number of grapes can = x = 15

Number of colas can = 8 + x = 8 + 15 = 23

Number of orange cans = x - 3 = 15 - 3 = 12

Hence number of three types of soda's can bought by Tameka that is grapes, colas and oranges are 15, 23 and 12 respectively.
