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
