Question #5149

When Bill was asked how old he was, he replied: "In two years I would have 2 times the age I was 5 years ago. How old is he?

Expert's answer

let's denote x - current age of Bill

hence we can construct the equation

x+2=2(x-5)

x+2=2x-10

x=12

hence we can construct the equation

x+2=2(x-5)

x+2=2x-10

x=12
