Let Sally's age be S.
S = 12 + (S/2)
S/2 = 12
S = 24
=============================
(new question; different age for Sally, S)
Let Billy's age(now) be B; Sally's age (now) = S. Billy is older by BS years
B + S = 28
B = 2*[S  (BS)] = 4S 2B
3B 4S = 0
4B + 4S = 112
7B = 112
B = 16
S = 12
When Billy was 12, Sally was 8; he is 16 now. It checks
