W = 3 D

W + 12 = 2 (D + 12) = 2D + 24

Solve for woman's current age (W) and her daughters current age (D)

3D + 12 = 2D + 24

D = 12

When a woman is as old as her father is now, she will be five times as old as her son is now. By then, her son will be eight years older than she is now. The combined ages of her father and herself are 100 years. How old is her son?
