    Find Ralph's age

    Question: Ralph has a puppy whose age in months is half Ralph’s age in years. In five years, the puppy’s age in months will be 5 more than twice Ralph’s age in years. Find the puppy’s current age in months.

    I start with setting them up by saying
    x+60 = 2(2x+5) + 5
    So x is 15
    So puppy’s current age is 15 but I’m not sure.
