If Todd is 10 years older than Jamal, and the sum of their ages is 64. How old is Todd and Jamal?

**j = Jamal's age**

**j + 10 = Todd's age**{Todd is 10 years older than Jamal}

j + j + 10 = 64 {the sum of their ages is 64}

2j + 10 = 64 {combined like terms}

2j = 54 {subtracted 10 from each side}

j = 27 {divided each side by 2}

j + 10 = 37 {substituted 27, in for j, into j + 10}

**Jamal is 27**

Todd is 37

Todd is 37
