lets assume that age of tamara is Z and Katrina sister's age are X and y according to Question:
one sister is 7 years older than tamara:
i.e. X=Z+7(1)
Other sister is 3 years younger than tamara:
Y=Z-3 (2)
product of tamara 's sisters age is 24
XY=24 (3)
multiply eqn1 and eqn2
XY=Z2+4Z21
put value of XY from eqn2
24=Z2+4Z21
on solving this equation
Z=5, -9
we got two values of Z but one of them is negative and age can not be negative so
Z=5 years
hence,
Age of Katrina =5 years
