Harry is twice as old as Doyle. Doyle's age is x years. Write in terms of x. A. Harry's age is 5 years ago. B. Doyle's age is 5 years ago. C. Find Doyle's age now if Harry's age was three times Doyle's age five years ago.

Doyle = x
Harry = 2x

Harry five years ago = 2x-5

Doyle five years ago = x-5

2x-5 = 3(x-5) = 3 x - 15

x = 10
