There are three siblings in a family. Their ages add to 26. Let nicks age be "x". John in half of micks age and Pip is two thirds of johns age. write an equation and solve. Find each Childs age.

Nick's age: x John's age: x/2 Pip's age = 2/3 * x/2 = x/3 The sum is 26, so we have: x + x/2 + x/3 = 26 Common denominator is (1 * 2 * 3) = 6 6x/6 + 3x/6 + 2x/6 = 26 Combine like terms: 11x/6 = 26 Cross multiply: 11x = 156 x = 14.1818 This doesn't make sense for age. Are you sure you wrote out the problem right?
