# Question #eb1b5

Jan 30, 2018

$x + 12$

#### Explanation:

The question is asking about the current age of Martina and Joey. The second sentence in this question can be ignored for now, because that part is for 3 years later.

Joey is $x$ years old, and Martina is 12 years older than Joey. If you add 12 to $x$, you will get Martina's total age.

For example,

if Joey was 4 years old, $x$ would represent 4. If you put this into the expression, Martina would be $4 + 12$ years old, which is 16 years.

So the expression will be $x + 12$.
