    eg. x is Jack’s age, y is Jimmy’s age

    x = 3 + 2y
    x + y = 18

    Subtitute x with 3 + 2y
    x + y = 18
    3 + 2y + y = 18
    3 + 3y = 18
    3y = 18 – 3
    3y = 15
    y = 15/3
    y = 5

    Jimmy’s age is 5

    5 is the correct answer.
    To prove it, subtract 5 from 18 – You’ll get 13.
    5 x 2 + 3 = 13.
