Open in App
Solution

Let the present age of the son be x years
Then father's age will be (x+30) years

Given after 12 years father will be three times as old as his son
Therefore,
(x+12)3=x+30+12
3x+36=x+42

3xx=4236
2x=6

x=3
x+30=3+30=33

So, the present age of son is 3 years and present age of the father is 33 years
