    ok, another one for you

    In 7 years, Maria will be four times as old as Algelica will be then. The sum of their ages now is 71.

    How old will each of them be in 5 years.

    2 variables and 2 equations.

    Can someone please just write the equation??????????? I can take it from there.

    Thanks

    Equations only

    In 7 years, Maria will be four times as old as Algelica will be then.

    M+7=4A

    The sum of their ages now is 71.

    M+A=71

    How old will each of them be in 5 years.

    M+5=?

    A+5=?
