Sweety’s mother is 12 years more than twice Sweety’s age. After 8 years, she will be 20 years less than three times Sweety’s age. Find Sweety’s age and Sweety’s mother’s age?

s = sweety now

m = mom now   =   2s + 12    

 

in 8 years     sweety = s+ 8

   mom =  (2s+12) + 8  =  3(s+8) - 20    solve for s

                2s + 20 = 3s + 4

                         16 y/o  = s             m = 2s+12 = 2(16)+ 12 = 44 y/o
