A+B+C = 21 years.

5 years later ((A+5)+(b+5))/2 = 1.5+B+5 ; simplifying A+C+10=13+2B ; Adding B on both sides A+B+C = 3+3B; 21 = 3+3B; B= 6. Ten years later b=16

(A+B+C)/3 = 7

A+B+C = 21

5 Years Later,
(A+C)/2 +5 = 3/2 + B + 5

Since A + B + C = 21 , we know that A+C = 21-B

Replace in above equation,

(21-B)/2 = 3/2 + B
B = 6

10 Years Later,

B =16
