1. The total worth of Barbie dolls is $55,000
m + n + p = 55,000
The total worth of Model dolls is $5000 more than than International Beauty
m = n + 5000
The Princess dolls are worth $200 less than Model and International together
p = m + n - 200

Thus we have three equations
(1) m + n + p = 55,000
(2) m - n ...

The total worth of Barbie dolls is expressed carefully in this guide.
