JP's age is twice the age of Reyna. The sum of their ages does not exceed 51 Let JP's age be j. Let Reyna's age be r. We're given two expressions: w = 2r r + w <= 51. (Does not exceed means less than or equal to) We substitute (1) into (2) for w to get the inequality: r + 2r <= 51 To solve this inequality, we type it in our search engine and we get: r <= 17
