    Write a verbal model!

  • Math -

    Sh = 2Ni + 2

    St = 5Ni -10

    Sh + Ni = St

    (2Ni + 2) + Ni = 5Ni - 10

    Solve for Ni.

    Read the above data out loud to get the verbal model.

    It could be any numbers

  • Math -

    S=2x+2
    N=x
    St=(2x+2)+x

    (2x+2)+x=5x-10
    3x-5x=-10-2
    -2x=-12
    X=6
    Then substitute to S and St to get their age
