1 Answer

  • Answer:

    Rose is 34.

    Anne is 14.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let rose be x years age now and anne be y years old now. Then:

    x + 6 = 2 (y + 6)

    x - 4 = 3(y - 4)

    Subtracting:

    6 - -4 =  2y + 12 - (3y - 12)

    10 = - y + 24

    -y = -14

    y = 14

    Substituting for y:

    x + 6 = 2(14+6)

    x = 40 - 6 = 34.
