One-third of Steven's age is 22 years less than his age 10 years ago. How old is Steven?

Let Steven be x

$$\frac{1}{3}x+22=x-10$$

$$\frac{1}{3}x+12=x$$

$$\frac{2}{3}x=12$$

$$\frac{1}{3}x=6$$

$$x=18$$

Steven is $$\boxed{18}$$ years old

$$\frac{1}{3}x+22-22=x-10-22$$

$$\frac{1}{3}x=x-32$$

$$\frac{1}{3}x-x=x-32-x$$

$$-\frac{2}{3}x=-32$$

$$3\left(-\frac{2}{3}x\right)=3\left(-32\right)$$

$$-2x=-96$$

$$x=48$$

Again, I am so sorry guest! And @ melody I will be more careful

It is just a careless error but you should have noticed that your answer does not make sense.

Hi Xxmathsguy,

Welcome to our Web2.0calc forum.   I can see you have been busy here.  I hope you are enjoying yourself. You do not need to appologise to the guest.  Or to anyone for that matter.

If they are too lazy or have so little knowledge that they can't then they are just copying and they should get it wrong.

If they are unsure then they should ask for further clarification.
