The Brainliest Answer!
1. Let x = Denise's present age
 x+5= Easter's present age

4 years ago their age will be x-4 for Denise and x=1 for Easter

2. Equation:
x+1= 2 ( x-4) -1

x+1= 2x-8-1
10=x ----> Denise's present age
x+5= 15 ----> Eater's present age

10-4= 6----> Denise's past age
15-4=11 -----> Easter's past age 

6 times 2 = 12 which answers the sentence: She was one year less than twice the age of Denise
