Let present age of Kristen be x and of Daniel be y.Then after 1 year,
x+1=4(y+1)or x4y=3.....Eq.1
After 10 yrs from then, ages will be
(x+1)+10=2[(y+1)+10] Or x+11=2y+22
Or x2y=11 .....Eq.2. Subtract eq. 1 from eq.2 and solve. We get y=4 and x=19.
Check: After 1 year Kristen will be 20 and Daneil will be 5. After another 10 yrs K will be 30 and D will be 15. OK.
Let smaller and greater integers be x and 4x. Then x+12=4x3 or 3x=15
Or x=5, and larger integer will be 20.
Check: 5+12=17=203. OK.
Let smaller no. be x, so larger one is x+12. Now x+2(x+12)=93
Or x+2x+24=93 or 3x=9324=69
Hence x=69/3=23 and larger no. is 23+12=35. Check:23+35*2=23+70=93, OK.
