Solving Algebra Word Problems
I have a word problem and no matter how hard I try I can't figure out how to do it and I need to figure out how to do these problems for my test. I need a step by step guide if possible please as I'm confused about how the three comes into the equation. The question is:
Jane's father was 27 years old when she was born. Now he is four times as old as she is.
Taking Jane's age to be x, write an equation from this information.
I would appreciate any help you could give me with this please as I really need to understand it.
