Larry might be lying. He takes his real age, adds 10, divides by 2, subtracts 10, and multiplies by 2 to get 30, and he claims that's his real age. His real age is

If he does those things in the order listed, the equation looks like this

x Larry's age

((x+10)/2 - 10 ) * 2 = 30 Solve for x First divide both sides of the equation by 2

(x+10 )/2 -10 = 15 add 10 to both sides

(x+10) /2 = 25 multiply both sides by 2

x+10 = 50 subtract 10 from both sides

x = 40 y/o = Larry ('the Liar's ' ) age
