  1. Just translate the English into "Math"

    "The sum of the ages of a brother and sister is 27" ---> b+s=27

    " if four times the brother's age is subtracted from three times the sister's age, the difference is 11"
    ---> 3s - 4b = 11

    Solve

    (I assume you know how to solve these two equations.)
