I have started going through the types of questions with my son using the recommended technique book and have come across a question that I can't work out. The answer is given as 14 and my son and I think it should be 22. It is number 38 on the practice paper B in this book. Can you show us where we are going wrong? Thanks :?

Dear Mrs Chubbs

Is it possible to rewrite the question here on the forum? I vaguely believe this question has come up before, is it from IPS?

Duncan is twice as old as Sebastian will be next year. Isabella is 8. Sebastian is three years older than Isabella was last year. How many years old is Duncan?
Thanks Patricia

Thanks Patricia
I think our posts passed in the ether. This has boosted both mine and my son's confidence. Onwards and upwards.

Dear Mrs Chubbs

Strangely, I have an old print of this question putting Isabella at the age of 4, which then works out at the correct answer of 14. Thats why I always remeber it...
