# Halima is now three years older than Nekesa If Nekesa's age is represented by x, what will be the sum of their ages in 10 years time?

$2 x + 23$

#### Explanation:

If you are looking for a certain number, then there are some missing information. but if not, then this is the answer.

• Now

$\text{Halina: } x + 3$

$\text{Nekesa: } x$

• In 10 years

$\text{Haline: } x + 3 + 10$

$\text{Nekesa: } x + 10$

So adding up their ages ten years from now,

$\left(x + 3 + 10\right) + \left(x + 10\right) = 2 x + 23$
