Hi all;
don't know how to tackle this type of problem.
Carla is 4 times older than her daugther in 30 years she will be half her age how old are they now?
Thanks.
Daughter's present age = x. Daughter's age in 30 years time = x + 30.
Carla's present age is y. Carla's age in 30 years time is y + 30.
Use the above to form equations from the statements below:
"Carla is 4 times older than her daugther":
"in 30 years she [the daughter] will be half her [Carla] age":
Solve the equations for x and y.
