what is the two equations for this problem?

let x = son's age

and y = Mrs. Johnson's age.

============================

y=3x is one equation.

10 years ago Mrs. Johnson' age was y-10 and the son's age was x-10. At that time, Mrs. Johnson was 5 times older; therefore,

y-10=5*(x-10) is the second equation. Post your work if you need further assistance.
