  2. How did you get your answer?
    It is not correct

    Felicia's present age .... f
    Tom's present age ........ t

    3f = t+4 **

    f+3 + t+3 = 30
    f+t = 24
    t = 24 - f ***

    sub *** into **
    3f = 24-f + 4
    4f = 28
    f = 7
    then t = 24-7 =17

    Felicia is now 7 and Tom is now 17

    check:
    three times Felicia's age is 21, which is 4 more than Tom's age
    in three years from now:
    Felicia is 10 and Tom is 20, with a sum of 30
    My answer is correct.
