this question consist of three parts
write an equation thaT SAYS THE SUM of their ages is 24
solve your equation .
old is each is each boy ? Josh:_____ and Paul _____ years old
my equation was p+2=24
Paul = p years old Josh = p + 2 years old (p) + (p + 2) = 24 2p + 2 = 24 2p = 22 p = 11 So Paul is 11 years old And Josh is 11 + 2 = 13 years old
