Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would do... Frank = Judy + 24 F = J + 24 In 3 years their sum will be 96 so (F + 3) + (J + 3) = 96 we know F = J + 24 so J + 24 + 3 + J + 3 = 96 J + J = 2J 2J + 24 + 3 + 3 = 96 2J + 30 = 96 2J = 66 J = 33 Judy is 33 and Frank is 33 + 24 = 57 so judy = 33 and frank = 57
