Ty is x years old now and Paul is 12 years older than Ty.

In two years Paul will be exactly twice as old as Ty is then.

P = Ty + 12 = x + 12

2(x + 2) = P + 2

2(x + 2) = x + 14

x = 10

Ty is x years old now and Paul is 12 years older than Ty

Ty = x

Paul = x + 12

In two years Paul will be exactly twice as old as Ty is then

(x + 12) + 2 = 2(x + 2)

Restate

x + 14 = 2x + 4

Subtract 4 from both sides

x + 10 = 2x

Subtract x from both sides

10 = x

x = 10

Ty is 10 years old today <––––––––

Ty = x

Paul = x + 12

(x + 12) + 2 = 2x

x + 14 = 2x

14 = x
