Answer:Blair caught 9 fish, and Jay caught 18 fish.Step-by-step explanation:Let b = number of fish Blair caught.

Jay caught 2 times as many fish as Blair, so Jay caught 2b fish.

Together, they caught b + 2b fish.

Together, they caught 27 fish.

b + 2b = 27

3b = 27

b = 9

2b = 18

Blair caught 9 fish, and Jay caught 18 fish.
