    Answer:

    K: 26

    G: 20

    S: 40

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let sofia’s age be 2x (easier to divide),

    george’s age is x (half)

    katerina’s age is 2x – 14

    so add them all up and you get:

    5x – 14 = 86

    5x = 100

    x = 20 (george’s age)

    so sofia is

    2(20)

    = 40 years old

    and katerina is

    40 – 14

    = 26 years old

    *hope this helps :^)

    Answer:

    George – 20, Sofia – 40, Katerina – 26

    Step-by-step explanation:

    G=x, S=2x, K=2x-14

    x+2x+2x-14=86

    5x=100

    x=20

    George=20, Sofia=2×20=40, Katerina=2×20-14=26
