Nicole claims she is half of Jennifer's age. Jennifer admits she is the oldest but is older than Tiffany by only 17 years. What is each womans age? >>...Tiffany...is older than Nicole by...2 years...<< T = N + 2 >>...Nicole...is half of Jennifer's age...<< N = 1/2J >>...Jennifer...is older than Tiffany by...17 years...<< J = T + 17 So we have a system three equations in 3 unknowns: T = N + 2 N = 1/2J J = T + 17 Can you solve that system? If not post again: Answer = J = 38, N = 19, T = 21 Edwin McCravy AnlytcPhil@aol.com```
