Pat is 20 years older than his son Patrick. In 2 years Pat will be twice as old as Patrick. How old are they now?

One number is nine more than twice another. If their sum is decreased by ten, the result is fourteen.

suppose patrick’s age is X. so pat’s age is 20+x

in two years, pat’s age will be 20+x+2

and patrick’s age will be x+2

given that 20+x+2 = 2(x+2)

22+x = 2x+4

or x = 18 i.e patrick’s age is 18 years. and pat’s age is 20+x = 20+18 = 38 years.

let first number be x

and

second number be y

it is given that x = = 2x+9

and x+y - 10 =14

solve these two equations and you would get the answer
