Question #331d6

Oct 28, 2017

$3 a - 8 = 34$

Danielle is $14$.

Explanation:

Danielle's aunt is $8$ years younger than $3$ times Danielle's age. That would be

$3 a - 8$

Her aunt is $34$, which is equal to $3 a - 8$, so

$3 a - 8 = 34$

Next, you would need to solve the equation. First, add $8$ to both sides. This would equal

$3 a = 42$

Divide both sides by $3$. The answer is

$a = 14$

Therefore, Danielle is $14$ years old.
