Albert is five times as old as Timothy. In five years, Albert will be four times as old as Timothy. How old will Timothy be in five years

Nov 23rd, 2014

Let Timothy's age be x

Then Albert's age is 5x

5x+5 = 4(x+5)

5x+5 =4x+20

5x-4x = 20-5=15

x = 15

Timothy;'s age =15 years

Albert's age = 75 years

Timothy will be 20 years after 5 years
