Not possible....  RIcky is older than Perry to start......how , in 4 years can he be less?

 

I will assume

In 4 years Perry's Ricky's age will be 2 years less than Ricky's Perry's age 3 years ago

 

R = 2P   and

(P+4)   + 2 = R-3       or    P = R-9    sub into first equation

 

R = 2(R-9)

R = 2R -18

-R = -18

R = 18  y/o              then      P = 9 y/o
