Buddy is thrice the age of Nimfa. Six years later, Buddy will be twice as old as Nimfa. How old is each?
Buddy's age is 18 and Nimfa's age is 6
It is said that Buddy's age is 3 times the age of Nimfa
Let us represent Nimfa's age as x
Meaning, Buddy's age will be represented as 3x
Next, in 6 years, Buddy's age is twice as old as Nimfa's age
Meaning that Buddy's age will be twice as old as Nimfa in 6 years
Basically, x=6. And as mentioned, Nimfa's age shall be represented as x, which is equals to 6 and Buddy's age is thrice the age of Nimfa.
That's why Buddy's age is 3 times 6, 18 and Nimfa is 6 years old
