Answer:

The total number of CDs can be found with the expression #Sigma=5T+76#

Explanation:

Be T the number of CDs owned by Tiffany.
Be A the number of CDs owned by Ariel.
Be V the number of CDs owned by Victor.

#A=T+19#
#V=3cdotA#

Therefore, the total number of CDs owned by Ariel, Tiffany and Victor is:

#Sigma=A+V+T=A+3cdotA+T=(T+19)+3cdot(T+19)+T#
#Sigma=5cdotT+76#
