**Reiny**, Wednesday, October 7, 2009 at 8:52amlet Leah present age be x yrs

then Tanya is now x+12

Three years ago, Leah was x-3

and Tanya was x+12 - 3 or x+9

at that time "Tanya was five times as old as leah"

x+9 = 3(x-3)

x+9 = 3x - 9

18 = 2x

x = 9

So Leah is now 9, and Tanya is now 21

check:

three years ago Leah was 6 and Tanya was 18

Was Tanya three times as old?

is 18 equal to 3 times 6?
