Mary is 16 years older than David, David is 13 years younger than Charlie. If the sum of their ages is 62, how old is Mary?

d= davids age

mary=d+16

charlie=d+13

d+d+16+d+13=3d+29=62

3d=33

d=11

Mary=d+16

Mary=27 years old

Let's call David's age x, Mary= 16+x, David= x, and Charlie= x+13. This means that 3x+29= 62. Solving for x we get x= 11. Mary= 16+x so 16+11= **27**.

Hope it helps!
