Answer:The car is 13 years old

Step-by-step explanation:Lets say Car is x and the Truck is y, so the trucks age = x + 3 = y

Lets find the value of the Car or x

x + 3 = 1/2(x + 7)——- >

first we will divide x by 1/2 and 7 by 1/2, So…

x + 3 = (x / 1/2 + 7 / 1/2)——- >

x + 3 = 1/2x + 3.5——->

next Isolate variable x,

x + 1/2x = 3 + 3.5

1/2x = 6.5, So…

x = 13 and in turn, y = 13 + 3
