A woman is three times as old as her daughter, but in 12 years she will be just twice as old as her daughter. How old is the daughter now and how hold is the woman now?

    W = 3 D
    W + 12 = 2 (D + 12) = 2D + 24

    Solve for woman's current age (W) and her daughters current age (D)

    3D + 12 = 2D + 24
    D = 12
