    Answer:

    5 = 19 - 4v

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given the following in the question:

    \text{Lyle's height} = 2( \text{Harry's height - Vince's height})

    Let l be Lyle’s height, h be Harry’s height and v be Vince’s height.

    Thus, we can write:

    l = 2(h-v)

    Lyle’s Height =

    2\dfrac{1}{2}\text{ feet}

    Harry’s height =

    4\dfrac{3}{4}\text{ feet}

    Putting the value in the equation:

    2\dfrac{1}{2} = 2(4\dfrac{3}{4}- v)\\\\\dfrac{5}{2} = \dfrac{19}{2} - 2v\\\\5 = 19 - 4v\\4v = 19-5\\\\v = \dfrac{14}{4}\\\\v = 3\dfrac{2}{4} = 3\dfrac{1}{2}

    Thus, Vince’s height is 3.5 feet.
