Arya is 3 years older than Cindi, and Kim is double Cindi's age. Lenny is 5 years older than Kim. Lenny is 17 years old. How old is Arya?

Let Cindi's age = C

Kim's age = 2C

Lenny's age = 2C + 5 = 17

Solving the last equation we have

2C + 5 = 17 subtract 5 from both sides

2C = 12 divide both sides by 2

C = 6 = Cindi's age.....and Arya is three years older = 9

If Lenny is 5 years older than Kim, and Lenny is 17, then Kim is 12, Cindi is 6, anf Arya is 9.
