The father is always 28 years older than his son so the equation can be written: (1) father = son + 28 at all times after birth at some point father is three times older than son so: (2) father = 3son So we can combine (1) and (2) equations as: 3son = son + 28 2son = 28 son = 14 so when the son is 14 the father is 28 years older which is 42 and 3 times older than 14.
