If the product of their ages is thirty more than fifteen times the sum of their ages. How old is chloe?Answer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Chole’s age = c Husband’s age = h Product of their ages = c*h Sum of their ages = c+h 15 times the sum of their ages = 15 (c+h) Chole two years older than her husband so if we add 2 years to the husband’s age both will be the same age c=h+2 …….(1) the product of their ages is thirty more than fifteen times the sum of their ages c*h=30+15(c+h)……..(2) Put the value of c from (1) to (2) (h+2)*h=30+15[(h+2)+h] h^2+2h=30+15h+30+15h h^2+2h=60+30h h^2+2h-60-30h=0 h^2-28h-60=0 h^2-30h+2h-60=0 h(h-30)-2(h-30)=0 (h+2)(h-30) h=-2 h=30 h=-2 impossible so h=30 Husband is 30 years old And Chole is 32
