Question 340422: Brad is presently 6 years older than Pedro. Five years ago Pedro's age was three-fourths of Brad's age at that time. Find the present ages of Brad and Pedro.
I've tried setting up the problem like this -
Let x = Pedro
Let ( x + 6 ) = Brad
x - 5 = 3/4 (x+6) - 5
Obviously I'm doing something wrong though. Can anyone help? Answer by Fombitz(13828) (Show Source):
