Here is why. follow the stem step-by-step

Four years ago, Adam bought a plot for an amount which was 3 times the amount paid by Ben for another plot.

So 4 years ago we have the following scenario (math translated into words )

Adam=A

which was means =

3 times the amount paid by Ben

translation

A=3B


Today the price of Adam’s plot is twice the price of Ben’s plot.B

Today means after 4 years therefore is A+4 for adam plot

is means =

twice the price of Ben’s plot.

2( Ben plot AFTER 4 years)

2(B+4)

Let me know if now is more clear sir

More on translating words into math
