Hello, I have a math question that has me stumped, could any give me the way to figure it out? Tina is twice as old as her cousin Sally. Their ages when added are 21years. How many years old is each girl? Thanks

If one is twice as old as the other, one-third of their total age is half the age of one and the age of the other.
