Let a = yoyo
b = yeye

a = b + 13
(a + 11) = 3(b+13+11) --> a + 11 = 3b + 3(24) --> a - 61 = 3b 

equations: a = b+13 ; a =3b + 61

b + 13 = 3b + 61
-2b = 48

There's something wrong in your problem. It should not yield a negative answer.
 considering the lowest possible ages, yoyo = 14; yeye = 1, 11 years would make them 25 and 12 years old respectively, and you won't get a third of yoyo's age with that time interval
