return = 5000(1.25) + 5000(.8)
= ...
#2
let Amy and Ariel' age be x
let Brett and Bart's age be y
let Charlene's age be z
x+y = 25
x + z = 27
y+z = 20
2nd minus the third
x  y = 7
add that to the first
2x = 32
x=16
in the 1st:
16+y = 27
y = 11
in the third:
11+z = 20
z = 9
so we have 2x + 2y + z
= 32+22+9 = 63
