In the first bag, there are 13 yellow beans (50% of 26).

In the second bag, there are 7 yellow beans (25% of 28)

In the third bag, there are 15 yellow beans (50% of 30).

There is a total of 13 + 7 + 15 = 35 yellow beans.

There is a total of 26 + 28 + 30 = 84 beans.

The percentage of yellow to the total is: 35 / 84 = 41.666666666%.
