This post is practicing simple equations. In 3 days there will be another one to change the subject of more simple equations. If you write your answers in the box at the bottom I will check them and reply to you. I won’t publish them on the page though!

“I am forty-one years older than you” is my point of view. In algebra language I would write R=C+41

What’s your point of view?

C=R-41

Looking at some of the people in my family then,

R=D+26 (I am 26 years older than D, my oldest daughter)

What’s her point of view?

D=R-26

Now let’s look at another relationship in my family,

R=G+28

Who is older? R or G?

R is older than G, by 28 years.

so how would G see it?

G=R-28

Now here’s something you can work out, given I am 54 at the moment,

How old is C?

How old is D?

How old is G?

One more person in my family is T. R=T (that’s my point of view) How old is T?

What is T’s point of view, in other words write T=…
