what's wrong with this word translation ??'

J= B + 20

J-12=2 (B+8)


John is 20 years older than Brian --> J=B+20;
12 years ago, John was twice as old as Brian --> J-12=2*(B-12);

Solving: B=32.

P.S. Please type in the questions which contain only the plain text rather than attach the screenshot.
