Kate in two years will be 8 because M is 4 now. So two years from now Kate will be twice as old. Not real timeframe or else M would age just as much as Kate so Kate can never be twice as old. So Kate is 6 now plus 4 equaling 10.

Age of Tom(T)=4+k Age of Marianne(M)=4 Given: In two years age of Kate will be Twice as old as Marianne. Twice the age of Mariannein two years=2+2(M) =2+2(4) Age of Kate =10 Age of Tom=4+k =4+10 =14

14 Set up a simple equation: T = K + 4 K + 2 = 2 (M + 2) M = 4 Substitute 4 for M. K + 2 = 2 (4 + 2) K + 2 = 2 6 K + 2 = 12 K = 10 Then substitute 10 for K. T = K + 4 T = 10 + 4 T = 14
