Mary, who is sixteen years old, is four times as old as her brother. How old will Mary be when she is twice as old as her brother?
Correct Answer
A. 24
Explanation
Mary is currently 16 years old and four times as old as her brother, who is 4 years old. To determine when Mary will be twice as old as her brother, we need to find the age gap between them. Currently, the age gap is 16 - 4 = 12 years. Since Mary is currently four times as old as her brother, the age gap will always be four times the brother's age. Therefore, when her brother is 8 years old, Mary will be 8 + 12 = 20 years old. However, this is not the answer. To find when Mary will be twice as old as her brother, we need to double the brother's age. When her brother is 8 x 2 = 16 years old, Mary will be 16 + 12 = 28 years old. Therefore, the correct answer is 28.
