The ratio of Christine's age to Wendy's age is 5 : 6.

In 5 years' time, their total age will be 76. What is Wendy's age now?

Thanks

Christine's age --> 5u

Wendy's age --> 6u

5 years' time :

Christine's age --> 5u + 5

Wendy's age --> 6u + 5

11u + 10 --> 76, 1u --> 6

6 x 6 = 36. Wendy's is 36 years old now.

cheers.

Thanks a lot MathIzzzFun!

I tot total u is 21...
