Answer to the AGe ProbLem

John is 46 years old. He is 4 years older than thrice his son’s age. Find the age of his son.
Age of John = 46 years
Age of Son    = x years

So, 46           = 4+3x
Subtracting 4 on both sides:
Dividing by 3 on both sides:
                    42/3 = , 3x/3
                          x =14
Therefore, the Son is 14 years old.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
