    A.
    n years ago, daughter was born. So now mother is n+30 and daughter is n

    n+30 = 3n+6
    n = 12
    In 5 years daughter will be 17

    B.
    n years ago

    6(15-n) = 40-n
    n = 10

    C.
    3j=b
    j+7+b+7=58
    4j=44
    j=11
    b=33

    D.
    t=3a
    t/2 + (a+7)/3 = t
    3a/2 + (a+7)/3 = 3a
    9a + 2a+14 = 18a
    a = 2
    t+7 = 13
