The sum of Louise’s age and Todd’s age is 34 years. Five years ago, the sum of twice Louise’s age and three times Todd’s age was 61 years. How old are they now?

L + T = 34

 

Five years ago they were five years less old      L- 5     and T- 5

 

2 ( L - 5)   +  3 (T-5)  = 61              Two equations...two unknowns....solve for L   and   T
