    Complete question :

    The sugar maple tree in Joshua’s yard is 1/4 the age of the oak tree in his yard. The sugar maple tree is 20 years old. How old is the oak tree?

    Answer:

    80 years

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that :

    Sugar maple tree = 1/4 age of oak tree

    Age of sugar maple tree = 20

    Age of oak tree = x

    20 = 1/4 * x

    20 = x / 4

    Multiply both sides by 4

    20 * 4 = (x / 4) * 4

    80 = x

    Hence, Age of oak tree = 80 years
