this must be an advanced question. I understand all of the other questions on here. maybe i'm just on the wrong sight. >.<

Sorry for taking so long! It's been a while since I've done problems like these. Let X = the man's current age; Y = the girl's age back then X-5 = 7Y X+10 = 2(Y+15) Solve for X in terms of Y or Y in terms of X. Man's present age = 26, girl's present age = 8 Sorry again!
