Brittany is twice as old as her youngest brother. If the difference between their ages is 15 years. How old is her youngest brother
These equations could be used to solve the problem: (s = 2b and s - b = 15). Substituting 2b for s, in the second equation, gives: 2b - b = 15, where b = 15. The younger brother is 15 years old.

In Tennessee Williams's famous book "A Streetcar Named Desire", what does Williams's depiction of Stanley and Blanche's lives say about the nature of desire?
In the book "A Streetcar Named Desire", Tennessee Williams explores the paths that desire can lead people down. By following where their desires lead them, Blanche and Stanley arrive at opposing places in their lives. Blanche has grown up in a strict society where any type of sexual desire has been cut down at the roots since she was a young girl. She has learned that the only acceptable form of expressing her sexual desires is through a very narrow and specific lens. Only people of similar class, skin color, and religion are socially allowed to court. This is why Blanche shows so much distress when seeing the living conditions that her sister, Stella, is put through when she marries Stanley. Blanche constantly denies her own sexuality for fear of breaking from the "norm", and loses her touch with reality because of it. Stanley, however, is depicted as the opposite of Blanche. He is so in tune with his sexuality that he allows it to dominate his life. He allows it to control him to the point where he rapes and assaults his wife due to his own selfish desires. Stanley and Blanche represents two extreme and opposing ends of the spectrum of desire. Blanche denies that she could ever have impure desires, while Stanley allows his to control his life. Williams tries to show his audience that moderation of desire is the way to a balanced life.
