    Answer: See explanation

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Michael is X years old.

    Jenny is twice as old as Michael. Thus means that Jenny = 2 × x = 2x

    The sum of their ages is 57.

    Therefore, x + 2x = 57

    3x = 57

    x = 57/3 = 19

    Michael is 19 years

    Jenny’s age = 2x = 2 × 19 = 38 years
