    X=how many years

    ago means minus

    48-x is age before for Ms. ford

    35-x is age before for ms. lincoln

    when is ford twice lincoln

    f=2l

    48-x=2 (35-x)

    distribute

    48-x=70-2x

    add 2x both sides

    48+x=70

    minus 48 from both sides

    x=22

    22 years ago

    ms. ford was 26 and ms lincoln was 13
