    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
