When my brother was 11 years, I was 2×11= 22years. This shows I am 11years older than him. 22-11=11.
Now that he is 22, I will add my 11years age difference. 22 +11=33years is my age now

     Brother was twice his age when he was 11.
    That means his brother age =2*11=22
    Difference between their age =22-11years
    Therefore , his brother is 11 years older than him.
     Since, he is 22year old now his brother will be 22+11=33yearsold

When he was 11,i was 11 x 2=22
Now,he is 22,
my age= his present age – his past age+my past age.
=22-11=11
my past age,22+11
=33 .Therefore,i am 33yrs.

Treasure OkonkwoTreasure Okonkwo replied 3 years ago

How is that possible, since when he was 11 you were twice his age, now he’s 22 you should also be twice is age and 22 + 22 which is 22 * 22 is 44, use your brain guys

When my brother was 11, I was 11 × 2 = 22. Now, he is 22, my age = 22 – 11 = 11. My past age, 22 + 11 = 33. My age is 33 years.

dee isidee isi answered 3 years ago

well for me i feel the right answer is 44;
your brothers age =11
you are two times his age=11*2
                                          =22
now your brother is 22 and your are two times his age 
                                             =22*2
                                              =44
sorry that’s just my opinion
