  4. Four years ago, Pinky was 4 times as old as Rosie. In ten years, she will be two years younger than twice the age of Rosie. How old are they now?

  5. x+27+10 is the mans age 10 years from now.
    x+10 is his sons age 10years from now.
    x=17
    17+27+10=54 is the mans age
    17+10= is his sons age
