Dr. Johnson is four times as old as his son. In twenty years, he’ll be twice as old.
How old are they now?
[su_spoiler title=”See the answer” style=”fancy”]
Dr. Johnson is 40, his son is 10.
Let y be Dr. Johnson’s age and x be his son’s age, then y=4x and y+20=2(x+20). Solving this system of two equations we get x=10 and y=40.
