    If Brian is 6 years older than Janelle, that means Janelle is 6 years younger. So to find Janelle's age, just subtract 6 from Brian's age, which is 13.

    We'll leave that till the end. Can you figure out what Janelle's age is?

    Right. And if janelle is half the age of Patty, that means Patty is twice as old. So can you figure out Patty's age?

    Right. And if Patty is 7 years younger than Adam, Adam is 7 years older. So can you figure out Adam's age then?
