This year, when Latifa and Jameel add their ages, the sum is 29. Latifa's age is 10 less than twice Jameel's age. The system of equations that represents this situation is {L+J=29L=2J−10 where L is Latifa's age and J is Jameel's age.

How old is Latifa?

Im confused. HELP??!?!?!?!?!

1. Jameel is X yrs. old.
Latifa is 2x - 10 yrs. old.

x + (2x - 10) = 29.
3x - 10 = 29,
X = 13.
2x - 10 = 2*13 - 10 = 16. = Latifa's age.
