Maggie is 7 years old.
Maggie = x years old
Maggie’s brother = 4x - 3 years old
x + 4x - 3 = 32
5x -3 = 32
5x = 35
x = 7
Let's write this as a system of equations.
Let's plug our value for b into the first equation and solve for m.
We combine like terms.
We add 3 to both sides.
We divide both sides by 5.
Therefore, Maggie is 5 years old.
I hope this helps!
its mainly because the pattern will be infinite and will never end. it will look like a gilder or like a filpbook when set to motion.
