    Answer:

    65 years old.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Set up variables first:

    U = 4A\\A = A\\U+ A = 65

    U is the Uncle, A is Alex.

    Substitiute U for the last equation.

    4A + A = 65

    Solve:

    5A = 65\\A = 13

    This means that Alex is 13 years old.

    This also means that the Uncle is 52 years old.

    Together they are 65 years old.

    Hope this Helps!
