My age today is three times what it will be three years from now minus three times what my age was three years ago. How old am I?

The math way:

X = The current age.

X=3(X+3)-3(X-3)
X=18.

If I was 18 then three times my age three years from now would be 21*3 (63). Three times my age three years ago would be 15*3 (45). Subtract 45 from 63 and I am 18.
