    Hello, Spixol123!

    Hi i am having troubles with working with fractions.
    Your problem is not with fractions, but with Reading.

    Bob had his fourth birthday last week.
    He is one third Maria's age.
    Sophia is half Maria's age and three times as old as Toby.
    What is the difference in age between Toby and Maria?

    . . (A) 8 yrs . . (B) 12 yrs . . (C) 10 yrs . . (D) 6 yrs

    How hard is this?

    Bob had his fourth birthday last week. . {\color{blue}\text{Bob} = 4}

    He is one third Maria's age. . {\color{blue}\text{Maria} = 12}

    Sophia is half Maria's age . {\color{blue}\text{Sophia} = 6}
    . . and three times as old as Toby. . {\color{blue}\text{Toby} = 2}

    What is the difference in age between Toby and Maria?
    . . Can you answer the question now?
