A mother tells her daughter, "When I was your age, you were 10. When you are my age, I will be 88" What are the current ages of the mother and daughter?
d = daughter age now
m = mom age now
difference in ages = m-d
roll back daughters age by the difference in ages d - (m-d) = 10 or 2d-m=10
advance moms age by age difference m + (m-d) = 88 or 2m-d=88
solve for m = 62 d = 36 y/o
