Say Aarons age = 2A years Therefore, Half of Aarons age = A years Therefore, Tanya's age = A+10 2A + A+10 = 55 3A + 10 = 55 3A + 10 -10 = 55 - 10 3A = 45 A = 15. Therefore, Tanya is 15 + 10 = 25 years old. (Aaron is 2 x 15 = 30 years old)

Miss Sue, I think you missed the "0" before 45 (0.045 not 0.45) 0.045 = 45/1000 = 9/200 = 0.045 So, the fraction is, 45/1000 = 9/200 (reduced to lowest terms) 0.045 * 100 = 4.5% So, the percent is, 4.5%
