Answer:29years

Step-by-step explanation:let phil age now = x

15 years ago, phil age = x-15

let darell age now = y

15 years ago darell age = y-15

15 years ago,

phil’s age = twice darell’s age

x-15 = 2(y-15)

x-15 =2y-30

x-2y = -30+15

x-2y = -15 ………………equation (1)

four years ago, Phil’s age = x-4

three years from now, darell’s age = y+3

x-4=y+3

x-y =3+4

x-y =7

x=7+y…………equation(2)

subtituting the value of x in equation (2) to equation (1)

x-2y = -15

7+y -2y = -15

7-y=-15

y=7+15=22

subtituting the value of y into equation (2)

x=7+y

=7+22=29

therefore, Phil age now is 29years
