    22 pencils

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Using key words and expressions, you can find the number of pencils each boy has and then add them together to find the sum:

    Liam: 6 pencils

    Noah: 'twice as many' as Liam or 6 x 2 = 12 pencils

    Jacob: '1/3 as many as Noah' or 12 x 1/3 = 4 pencils

    6 + 12 + 4 = 22 pencils total
