Question about Vivendi Math Blaster Algebra (03763) for PC, Mac
Allan is 19 and Roy is 13.
First we have 2 variables, their ages: I used Allan = x & Roy = y
Equation 1: X - 4 = 2*(Y-4) - 3
We can ignore the 5 years in the second part of the statement. Allan will always be 6 years older than Roy whether it be 5 years from now or ten years form now.
Equation 2: X = Y + 6
Substitute Y + 6 for X in equation 1:
X - 4 = 2*(Y-4) - 3 becomes Y + 6 - 4 = 2*(Y-4) - 3
That simplifies to Y + 2 = 2Y - 8 - 3
Rewrite it again: Y + 2 = 2Y - 11
Add 11 to both sides: Y + 13 = 2Y
Subtract Y from both sides: 13 = Y
Now plug 13 in for y in Equation 2
X = Y + 6
X = 13 + 6
X = 19
