Allan is 19 and Roy is 13.

Solution:

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

SOURCE: Father is 3 times as

So the father is 3 times as old as his daughter.
Let F represent the age of the fatherLet D represet the age of the daughter
So we know from the first sentence,
F = 3 * D
From the second sentence, 12 years from now the father is 1 year les than twice his daughters age,
First, lets assume it's not 12 years from now (to avoid confusion), we would haveF + 1= 2 * D
But since its 12 years from now, we have to add 12 to both ages
(F + 12) + 1 = 2 * (D + 12)
Let's simplify a bit,

F + 13 = 2 * D + 24F = 2D + 11
Now we have to solve these two equations together, we can plug the first equation into the second,
F = 3 * DF = 2 * D + 11
3 * D = 2 * D + 11D = 11
So the daughter is 11 years old, we can find out how old the father is by plugging into the first equation
F = 3 * DF = 3 * 11F = 33
So the father is 33 and the daughter is 11.

SOURCE: Jan is twice as old

Jan is 48 years old and Jake is 24 years old.
(Jan - N, Jake - K N=2K N+K=5K-48 N+K+48=5K N+48=4K N+48=2N 48=N K=N/2=48/2=24)
Thanks, that was fun.

Let m be Marian's age, d Diana's age and c Carlos age.
• sum of ages is 17: m+d+c=17
• two years from now Marian will be twice as old as Diana: m+2=2*(d+2) so m+2=2d+4 so 2d=m-2 or d=(m-2)/2=m/2-1
• Carlos will be half as old as Marian 4 years from now: c+4=1/2(m+4) or c+4=m/2+2 or c=m/2-2
• now: m+d+c=m+m/2-1+m/2-2=17
• 2m=17+3=20
• m=20/2=10 years
• d=m/2-1=5-1=4 years
• c=m/2-2=5-2=3 years
Marian is 10 years old, Diana 4 years old and Carlos is 3 years old.

### Mary who is sixteen years old is four times as old as her brother.How old will mary be when his twice as old as her old brother?

Let the brother's age be x:
16years for Mary = 4x years for Brother

From equation: 4x = 16
x = 4
Therefore, the brother is 4 years old.

Mary Brother
16 4
After 4 years + 4 4
20 8
After the next 4 years + 4 4
24 12

24 is twice as old as 12; therefore for the sister to be twice as old as brother she will 24years when her brother is 12 years.

Or by calculation;

If 4 is the age for the brother, when the sister is 16, and y years will pass for the to be such that the sister is twice as old as the brother, then;

16 + y = 2(4 + y)
16 + y = 8 + 2y
16 - 8 = 2y - y
8 = y
Therefore, 8 years elapse before the sister is twice as old as the brother.

Sister will be: (16 + 8) = 24years
Brother will be: (4 + 8) = 12years

### Alvin is now 20 years older than his son.In 10 years,he will be twice as old as his son's age.What are their present age's?

Christine,

D=S+20 (Dad is 20 years older than Son)
D+10 = 2xS (In ten years Dad will be twice Son's current age)
therefore (by substitution):
S+20+10 = 2xS
S+30 = 2S
2S = S+30
2S-S = 30 (subtract S from both sides)
S = 30 (Son's current age) *answer*
D = S+20
D = 30+20

In ten years, Dad will be 60, which is twice Son's current age of 30.

### Jasmin is twice as old as rodney nine years ago

Hi,

Let the present age of the Rodney = X
present Age of the Jasmin = Y

As per the Situation,

Y-9 = 2 (X - 9)
Y-9 = 2X - 18
Y = 2X - 18 +9
Y = 2X-9

Second,

X + Y = 45
Y = 45 - X

Taking Both the situations,

2X - 9 = 45 - X
3X = 54
X = 54/3 = 18

Y = 45 - 18 = 27

Hence,

Age of Jasmin = 27

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

### Find thier ages

Edwin is 14. Ruel is 7.

In 3 years Edwin will be 17. Edwin will be 10. (3*10 - 13 = 17)

Let x=Ruel's age now, and 2x=Edwin's age now.

2x+3=3(x+3)-13
2x+3=3x+9-13
2x+3=3x-4
2x+7=3x
7=x

If you are going to post these, the least you could do is rate them as Fixya. :-) Thanks!
