Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question is basically saying: June is 2 years younger than Hal==> J=H2 Sara is 4 years younger than Hal==>S=H4 In four years, Hal will be four years older==> H+4 which will be equal to the sum of Sara and June's current age Therefore, H+4=H2+H4 Solve for H, You get, 10 Plug in 10 for H in June and Sara's equation from the first year You get: Sara=H4 = 104 = 6 June=H2 = 102 =8
