x = the age of Mr. GilliamHis wife is 3 years older, so the age of Mr. Gilliam's wife = x+3The sum of their ages is 95.[tex]x+x+3=95 \\
x=46[/tex]Mr. Gilliam is 46 years old.
c= a+bb= a-395= a+a-395=2a-398=2aa= 49b=49-3b=46This is a system of equations. The ages are 49 and 46. Mr. Gilliam is 46. Their ages are equal to 95 so I put two variables equal to 95. And one of the ages is 3 years younger than the other so I did another equation subtracting 3 from a variable. Then I plugged in the numbers! Check it out and ask me if you have questions! :)
