is 4 times as old. In how many
years will Scott be half as old as
his aunt will be at that time?
Right now, Scott is 5.
His Aunt Mary is 4*5 = 20
We can solve this algebraically if your teacher requires to.
In x years, Scott will be half as old as his Aunt right now (which is 20).
In 5 years Scott will be half as old as his aunt was.
