Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If Alvin is 7 years younger than Elga, then Alvin + 7 = Elga. If the sum of their ages is 87, then Alvin + Elga = 87. Substitute Alvin + 7 in the previous equation to get Alvin + (Alvin + 7) = 87. Reduce that and get 2 Alvin = 80 which means that Alvin = 40. That means that Elga = 47.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Basically what Jacob said. :) If you try to use the equation n + (n + 6) = 92 n is Thomas' age what you have to do is this; 1) simplify the equation 2n + 6 = 92 2) isolate the variable 2n = 86 n = 86/2 then go form there >.<
