Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let: x = marios age now y = son's age So... x = 5y (x3) = 5(y3) Plugging that in: 5y  3 = 5y  15 Something's wrong...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since mario is 5 times something = 5x and when they say 3 years ago so it's 3 = 5x  3 = 0, solve for x and x = 3/5 I guess :)
