# The square of Jamie's age now is equals to his age in 6 years time. How old is Jamie now?

Mar 21, 2018

Let us assume that Jamie's age is $x$ now.

#### Explanation:

The square of his age=${x}^{2}$
His age after 6 years=$x + 6$
So, ATQ
${x}^{2} = x + 6$
${x}^{2} - x - 6 = 0$
$x = - 2$ or $x = 3$
