# Lisa is now six years older than Cheryl. In two years, Lisa will be twice as old as Cheryl. How old is Lisa now?

--------------------------------------------------

Define x :

--------------------------------------------------

Let Cheryl be x years old.

Cheryl = x

Lisa = x + 6

--------------------------------------------------

In two years time:

--------------------------------------------------

Cheryl = x + 2

Lisa = x + 8

--------------------------------------------------

Lisa will be twice as old as Cheryl :

--------------------------------------------------

x + 8 = 2(x + 2)

--------------------------------------------------

Solve x :

--------------------------------------------------

x + 8 = 2(x + 2)

x + 8 = 2x + 4

x = 4

--------------------------------------------------

Find their age :

--------------------------------------------------

Cheryl = x = 4

Lisa = x + 6 = 4 + 6 = 10

--------------------------------------------------**Answer: Lisa is 10 years old now.**
