    Corinne's Age = b - 6 Corrine's Brother's Age = b We have to add these together, so we have (b - 6) + b. Do you know how to simplify this?

    Take a look at this and see if it makes things easier. Since Corinne's Brother's age is (b), and Corinne's age is (b - 6), we can add the 2 (b)'s together and then subtract 6

    Let's say b = 19 (b - 6) + b (19 - 6) + 19 13 + 19 32 2b - 6 2*19 - 6 38 - 6 32

    Confusing one, but I think the 2nd one. The first one would be one-third of a number plus twlve
