# I am now three years younger than twice what my age was 6 years ago. What is my age now?

Oct 27, 2016

You age now is 15 years old.

#### Explanation:

We will let $a$ be your age now.

Your age 6 years ago would can then be expressed as $a - 6$,

Twice your age six years ago can be expressed as $2 \left(a - 6\right)$ or 2a - 12)

Therefore you age us:
$a = \left(2 a - 12\right) - 3$

$a = 2 a - 15$

$a - a + 15 = 2 a - a - 15 + 15$

$a = 15$
