"Tisha is five years older than John. Alex is three more than twice Johns age. Sara is twice as old Tisha. If John's age is represented by A, what is the algebraic representation for the other ages?"

- math -
**Willow**, Monday, February 23, 2009 at 8:03pmSometimes it helps to right seperate equations for each person's age.

a + 5 = Tisha

2a + 3 = Alex

2tisha = Sara

I guess you could have that system of equations be your answer, just pick a variable for each person's name. I'm not exactly sure how you would combine that all into one equation.

Hope I helped! :)
