Sally's grandfather is 67 tears old.
Sally is 19 years old.
At what age will Sally be exactly one third of her grandfather's age?
How old will her granfather be then?

  • Math problem solvimg -

    ( 67 + x ) / ( 19 + x ) = 3 Multiply blth sides by ( 19 + x )

    67 + x = 3 ( 19 + x )

    67 + x = 3 * 19 + 3 * x

    67 + x = 57 + 3 x

    67 - 57 = 3 x - x

    10 = 2x

    2 x = 10 Divide both sides by 2

    x = 10 / 2

    x = 5


    Salys age will be 19 + 5 = 24

    Granfathes age will be 37 + 5 = 72


    72 / 24 = 3
