Age of Shashi's mother is 12 years more than twice the age of shashi. After 8 years mothers' age will be 20 less than trice the age of Shashi. Find the present age of Shashi and his mother.

Please give a line by line solution.

2. ## Re: age related question

M = Mother's Age
S = Shashi's Age

Set up a system of equations for now and in 8 years from now

Spoiler:
At time =0 which is now: $M = 2S+12$

In 8 years: $M+8 = 3(S+8)-20$
