Bags of marbles

I have 7 bags of marbles. There are 200 marbles in total. Using the clues below, work out how many marbles are in each bag.

Bag 1 + Bag 2 = 57 marbles
Bag 2 + Bag 3 = 83 marbles
Bag 3 + Bag 4 = 71 marbles
Bag 4 + Bag 5 = 43 marbles
Bag 5 + Bag 6 = 66 marbles
Bag 6 + Bag 7 = 43 marbles

Here is a hint for everyone, the first bag of marbles contains an odd amount, and the last bag contains an even amount. Happy puzzle solving.

Thank you Brandon for this question.

Your welcome Mr. Reece ........................ but is there a limit to how much we can post

Brandon you can continue to make posts such as this over time, but you also need to be prepared to give people clues and finally the answer over a few days time as well.

Keep the questions coming.
Mr R.
