Multiply Jacob's age by three, then add six.  This will equal dad's age. 

 

                                                         3J + 6 = 39   

subtract 6 from both sides                3J       = 39 – 6  

                                                         3J       = 33 

divide both sides by 3                         J      = 11

For this problem you can work backwards. If it is 6 years after Jacob is three times his age. First, subtract 6 from 39. 39 - 6 = 33. Then, divide by 3,     33÷3 = 11. So his age is 11.cheeky
