So Suresh = 2x Hakima; and Suresh is Saad+4. Let's make the age be X. Which means that

X+2X+X-4=48 ==> 4X - 4 = 48 ==>4X = 48 + 4 = 52 ==> 4X/4 = 52/4 ==> X = 13

Suresh is 13

Hakima is 2x 13 = 26

Saad = 13 - 4 = 9

s = Suresh's age

2s = Hakima's age

s - 4 = Saad's age

so s + 2s + s - 4 = 48

4s - 4 = 48

4s = 48 + 4 = 52

so s = 52 ÷ 4; see what that is then plug it in at the top
