Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let Sam's age now be x Sam's coach is three times older than Sam, so, his coach's age now = 3x 15 years ago, Sam's age = x15 his coach's age = 3x 15 , then his coach was six times his age, so 6(x15) = 3x15 can you solve this equation to get the value of x ?
