    To solve this you would need to set this up as an equation
    Children=x
    Women=2x
    Men=4x
    Children is x because the amount is unknown
    So to set this up it would be x+2x+4x=266
    All of the x’s added is 7x so it’s 7x=266
    Divide both sides by 7
    7/7 cancels out leaving only x and 266 divided by 7 is 38
    So the amount of kids is 38, the amount of women is 76 and the amount of men is 152
    In short C
