Kevin is 3 times as old as Daniel. 4 years ago, Kevin was 5 times as old as Daniel. How old is kevin now?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: K = Kevin's age
D = Daniel's age

K = 3D

K - 4 = 5(D - 4)

Plug in 3D for the K values in the second equation.

3D - 4 = 5(D - 4)   Use the Distributive Property
3D - 4 = 5D - 20   Add 4 to both sides
     3D = 5D - 16     Subtract 5D from both sides
    -2D = -16            Divide both sides by -2
       D = 8 
 Now, plug that D value into the original equation.

K = 3D    Plug in the D value
K = 3(8)   Multiply
K = 24

Finally, you can double check your math.

4 years ago, Daniel would've been 4 and Kevin would be 20, so Kevin would've been 5 times as old as Daniel.  And 8 x 3 = 24.

So, Kevin is 24.
Answer 2
Answer: K=kevin age
d=daniel ae

k is 3 times d
k=3d

4 years ago (k-4 and d-4)
kevin was 5 times as old as dan

k-4=5(d-4)

we have
k=3d
and
k-4=5(d-4)
sub 3d for k in second euaiton
3d-4=5(d-4)
3d-4=5d-20
minus 3d both sides
-4=2d-20
add 20 both sides
16=2d
divide 2
8=d
sub back
k=3d
k=3(8)
k=24

kevin is 24

In an isosceles trapezoid, the longest base is 11", a leg is 5", and the height is 4". Find the length of the shorter base of the trapezoid.

Answers

TeUpon examination of the dissection of the trapezoid on each side, we can see that we can make out two isosceles triangles on each side. The angle on the corners of the base can be determined by sine function. we can also use pythagorean theorem, in which the other length is equal to 3". This leaves the shorter base equal to 11-2*3 equal to 5"
