Height math

It’s time for the promised word problem about the girls heights as measured at their last doctors appointments.

The difference between their heights is considered an unlucky number for hotel floors, it’s generally skipped. In fact, if you took that number twice and added 3/4 to it, it would be Celia’s height, and tripled it and added 3/4 you get Josies height back again.

Three variables, three equations, that should satisfy the complaints about the lack of constraints (other than the whole constraint of reality) on the last one.
