22 years ago Mr. Burk's sister was half Mr. Burk's age at that same time. (for example if he was 10 at that time she would have been 5) 5 years from now she will be 4/5 his age. How old are each of them now?

    using the equation, you can find the value of the unknown variables, representing their ages
