# Age Riddle

Algebra Level 1

A woman composed the following riddle about her age:

Four times two and nine times three

Add that to my age and it will be

As much as two tens and a four

Plus twice my age exceeds a score.

Put into algebra, it simply means $4\cdot 2+9\cdot 3+x=2\cdot 10+4+2\cdot x-20.$ How old is the woman?
