This is the algebra age word problem that read Pol is 10 years younger than greg. In 7 years, he will be 10 years more than one halfas old as greg. Find their age at present. help me solve it.

Let Greg be X and Pol be X - 10 as far as current ages. In 7 years (thats x + 7) he will be 10 years more than 1/2 as old as greg (thats (x - 10 + 10)/2 or x/2). So set them equal..

X and x -10

x + 7 and x - 10 + 7 28 and 25

(x+7)/2 + 10 = x - 3

x + 17 = 2x - 6 ******** Correction 2 * 10 = 20 + 7 = 27 So it should be

x + 27 = 2x - 6

x =33 ---> Which is Greg's age so Pol's is x-10 or 33 -10 = 23

So Pol is 23 and Greg is 33

ndi ko parin gets ehh

ReplyDeletehiwap aman nyan

noh kea yun

eh ass namin yan

wewzxz

help me aman

d q ma gets.. dba ung x="Gregs age"..

ReplyDeletetpos dapat in eq. (x+7)/2 +10 = x-3

2[(x+7)/2 +10]=[x-3]2

x+7 +20 = 2x-6

7+20+6 = 2x-x

33 = x

mali solution.

ReplyDelete(x+7)/2 + 10 = x - 3

ReplyDeletex + 17 = 2x - 6

mali to

ano nangyari sa 10 ganun pa din?

mali solution tama sagot

ReplyDeletewrong solution po. solution is confusing. (x+7)/2 + 10 = x-3 must be x+7+20 = 2x-6. therefore x=33, that is greg's present age. ginamit sa given x is equal to greg's age, why pagdating sa answer ung value nakuha sa x naging age na ni pol?

ReplyDeletemali naman to eh

ReplyDeletetama naman yun.... cguro better understanding lng sa mga baguhan....

ReplyDeletebuang ka bhea..bulok

ReplyDeletePol should be 23, and Greg should be 13.

ReplyDeletePol=x

Greg=x-10

x=23

Pol=23

Greg=23-10 -> 13

mali solution....x=23 hahahah lol paano naging mas younger c greg kay pol ...dapat dyan x=33 then subsitute 33-10=23.. hayzzz bulok

ReplyDeleteOo nga!! ang hirap nyan! paano naging x =23

ReplyDeleteThe solution is correct -- just check the problem and the answers. I said Pol is 23 and Greg is 33 .. In the problem it starts out ... "Pol is 10 years younger than greg..." 33 gregs age minus 23 pols age = 10 - So far so good... Now it says, "In 7 years, he will be 10 years more than one halfas old as greg." Ok in 7 years Pol will be 30 and greg will 40. Half of 40 is 20 and Pol is 30 in 7 years which is 10 years more than half of Greg's age of 40. It checks out.

ReplyDeletetable method.

ReplyDeletepresent future

pol x-10 (x-10)+7

greg x (x+7+10)/2 <- it says 10 and one half older dan pol.

(x-10)+7 = (x+7+10)/2

x-3 = (x+17)/2 <- multiply both sides by 2

2x - 6 = x+17

2x-x =17+6

x=23

therefore the age of greg now is 23 and the present age of pol is 23-10 =11

this is my solution for that problem. correct me if i'm wrong

its simple. the question is wrong. greg is 23 and paul is 13 so in 7 yrs how would their ages be appropriate for the question.

ReplyDeletePet -- Using your answers Pol 11 and Greg 23... In 7 years Pol will be 18 and Greg will be 30 right? ok Now whats 1/2 of 30 ? its 15. Sorry 18 is not 10 years more than 15(which is half of what Greg will be in 7 years)
