    well start with N = J + 16 then J = B+10 then B + J + N = 66 ( the letters are the first names of the boys). Now use a powerful mathematical tool known as subsititution!

    okay look at N = J + 16 , we know that J = B+10 right?

    so in N = J + 16, replace J. we know J = B+10 so we just put that were J is. N = (B+10) +16

    so now we know N = B +10+16 and we know J = B+10 so go back to J+B+N = 66 and put in what J and N equal in terms of B, solve for B

    the more you practice the easier it becomes and then it'll be just as easy as adding 1+1
