Answer:his daughter is 10

Step-by-step explanation:Jeff is 32, His Daughter is 8The relationship between the age of Jeff and his daughter can be summarized by the following systems of equation:

Jeff’s age = x

Jeff’s Daughter’s age = y

x=4yjeffs age is equal to his daughters times fourx-5=9(y-5)jeffs age minus five is equal to his daughters age minus five as well times 9Combining these equations will get us x=32, y=8.
