In 20 years, Kayleen will be four times older than she is today. What is her current age?

Solution:

Let x = Kayleen's age now

Let x + 20 = Kayleen's age 20 years from now

My Equation:

x + 20 = 4x

Correct?

x + 20 = 4x means x = 20/3

Looks like problem statement is wrong: "in 30 years" would work. - Mar 5th 2019, 01:30 PMharpazoRe: Kayleen's Age Today
