# Nick is now seven times as old as Harry. In 6 years, Nick will be five times as old as Harry. How old will Harry be in 6 years? 12 16 18

Harry now = x

Nick now =7x

Nick in 6 years = 7x+6

Harry in 6 years = x+6

Nick in 6 years = 5(Harry in 6 years)

7x+6 = 5(x+6)

So that's the one we want: 7x+6 = 5(x+6)

7x+6 = 5x+30

2x = 24

x =12

so Harry's age in 6 years will be x +6 or 18 years .
