    Answer:

    Newt: 9

    Jenna: 18

    Sheerab: 36

    Sarita: 41

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First, you want to have x equal Newt because he borrowed the least. So then Jenna is 2x, Sheerab is 4x, and Sarita is 4x + 5. So now we add everything together and we have x + 2x + 4x + 4x + 5 = 104. That equals 11x + 5 = 104. We subtract 5 from each side, and that equals 11x = 99. Divide each side by 11 and x equals 9. So now we add everyone up and the answer is up there. I hope this helps and please mark me brainliest!
