The question is
Jack is now 14 years older than Bill. If in 10 years Jack will be twice as old as Bill , how old will Jack be in 5 years? (Ans=23)
Here is how I am solving it could anyone tell me where I might be going wrong ?
$J = 14 + B$-->i
and $J+10 = 2B$-->ii
So inserting (i) in (ii) we get
$24=B$ so Jack is $38$ and after 5 years he will be $38+5=43$ years old
