Four years ago, Jane was twice as old as Same. Four years on from now, Sam will be 3/4 of Jane's age. How old is Jane now?
Correct Answer 12 Twelve TWELVE twelve
Explanation Four years ago, Jane was twice as old as Sam. This means that Jane's age four years ago was twice Sam's age four years ago.
Let's assume Sam's age four years ago was x.
Therefore, Jane's age four years ago was 2x.
Now, we are asked to find Jane's current age.
Four years on from now, Sam will be 3/4 of Jane's age.
Let's assume Jane's current age is y.
Therefore, Sam's age four years from now will be y + 4, and it will be 3/4 of Jane's age.
So we can write the equation as: y + 4 = (3/4)y.
Simplifying the equation, we get: 4y + 16 = 3y.
Subtracting 3y from both sides, we get: y = 16.
Therefore, Jane is currently 12 years old.
