# Ishaan is 3 times as old as Christopher and is also 14 years older than Christopher. How old is Ishann?

**Solution:**

We have to find the age of Ishaan.

Let the age of Ishaan be x.

Age of Christoper be y.

Given, Ishaan is 3 times as old as Christoper,

So, x = 3y ------------ (1)

Ishaan is 14 years older than Christoper,

So, x = 14 + y -------- (2)

Substituting (1) in (2),

3y = 14 + y

3y - y = 14

2y = 14

y = 14/2

y = 7

Now, x = 3(7)

x = 21.

Therefore, the age of Ishaan is 21 years.

## Ishaan is 3 times as old as Christopher and is also 14 years older than Christopher. How old is Ishann?

**Summary:**

Ishaan is 3 times as old as Christopher and is also 14 years older than Christopher. Ishaan is 21 years old.
