THANKSAnswer by rm29924(72)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let X = Kumar's present age Dollah's present age is 3X X+12 = Kumar's age in 12 years 3X+12 = Dollah's age in 12 years th sum of their ages in 12 years sum means add will equal 10X Our equation is: X+12+3X+12=10X 4X+24=10X subtract 4X from both sides 24=6X divide 6 from both sides to get X by itself X=4 Kumar's present age is 4 years old. Dollah is 3X 3(4)=12 Dollah's present age is 12 years old.
