    Answer:

    • 33 and 6 years

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Mother’s age = m
    • Son’s age = s

    3 years later:

    • m + 3 = 4(s + 3) ⇒ m = 4s + 12 – 3 = 4s + 9

    3 years ago:

    • m – 3 = 2(s + 8) ⇒ m = 2s + 18 + 3 = 2s + 21

    Solve for s by substitution:

    • 4s + 9 = 2s + 21
    • 2s = 12
    • s = 6

    Find the value of m:

    • m = 4*6 + 9 = 33

    Mother is 33 and son is 6
