Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write down what you know, as equations. Let Mike's daughter's age be x. Mike's age is 3 times his daughter's age, minus 6, so Mike's age is 3x  6. But we also know that Mike's age is 36. So, 3x  6 = 36. Solve that for x, and you know how old his daughter is. I feel sorry for Mike :)
