1) C = coach; T = Tim C = T + 10; C-3 = 2(T-3), so C = 2T - 6 + 3 = 2t - 3 2t - 3 = t + 10 t = 13, Tim's age now, so coach is 23; three years ago they were 10 & 20

Let's assign: Coach Johnson's age : J Tim's age: T Now according to our data we have: Coach Johnson is 10 years older than Tim That means: J = T+10 Also, three years ago, Coach Johnson was twice his age.. That means: J-3 = 2*(T-3) Let's solve this set of equations using substitution: J-3 = (T+10)-3 = 2T -6 => T=7+6 => T = 13 therefore Tim's age is 13 years old J=T+10 => J=23 therefore coach Johnson's age is 23 years old.. This is correct since they have 10 years difference and three years ago Tim was 10 and Johnson was 20, so tthe coach had twice Tim's age. Solved! :D
