*Two years ago, Isabella's age was three times her brother's age. Her brother is now x **years old. How old is Isabella now?*

Two years ago (-2), Isabella's age was three times (3) her brother's age. Her brother is now x years old. How old is Isabella now?

Isabella's age 2 years ago = 3x - 2

Isabella's age now = 3x

This isn't right.... Help me!
