The Brainliest Answer!

x + y = 58

y = 58 - x

Let Patrick's age be x

Mako's age be 58 - x

Ages eight years ago ( minus 8):

Patrick's: x - 8

Mako's: 58 - x - 8 or 50 - x

Equation:

x - 8 = 2 (50 - x)

x - 8 = 100 - 2x

x + 2x = 100 + 8

3x = 108

3x/3 = 108/3

Check:

36 + 22 = 58

58 = 58

Patrick's age 8 years ago: 36 - 8 = 28 years old

Mako's age 8 years ago: 22 - 8 = 14 years old

Patrick's age was twice Mako's age 8 years ago:

28 = 2 (14)

28 = 28
