Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry 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 X5 = 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!
