One half of Heather's age two years from now plus one third of her age three years ago is twenty years. How old is she now?
Let x= Heather's age now
X must be a whole number that is positive.

  • Algebra -

    (1/2)(x+2) + (1/3)(x-3) = 20
    multiply both sides by six

    3(x+2) + 2(x-3) = 120

    5 x = 120
    x = 24
