My current age, is the age of my friend (who is 14), plus one third of my age.
How old will I be when my friend is twice their current age?

Hint: A little algebra might help.
I will be 35 (in 14 years time).
I am currently 21.
If x is my current age, then:
x = 14 + x
3x = 42 + x
2x = 42
x = 21
I am currently 21 and my friend is currently 14, when they are 28 (double their age) I will be 35.
