help!!! another math word problem!!!?
In a game of basketball, a goal is worth 2 points, while a free throw is worth 1 point.
In one game, Graydon scored 18 points while Phil scored 14 points. Phil scored 3 times as many free throws as Graydon, but only half as many goals. How many goals did each of them score?
thanks to Avinash for answering my question :)
but i need to know what those letters stand for because i still don't get it!!!

pf = 3gf
2pg = gg
pf+2pg = 14 gf+2gg = 18
3gf+gg = 14
3gf+6gg = 54
5gg = 40
gg = 8 goals done by Graydon
phil scored half of them so 4 goals
phil: 4 goals
