shannon is five years older than tony. jeanette is twice as old as shannon. nicholas is twice as old as jeanette. if the sum of their ages is 75 how old is shannon

For argument sake S- Shannon

T- Tony

J- Jeanette

N- Nicholas

75= 5+T+2xS+2xJ

The actual equation would be

5+x+2x+2x=75

5+5x=75

subrtract 5 from each side

5x=70

divide each side by 5

x=14

If x represents T (Tony) he is 14 which would make shannons equation

14+5=19

Shannon is 19
