Question

A person's present age is two - fifth of the age of his mother. After 8 years he will be one - half of the age of his mother. How old is the mother at present?


  1. 32 years

  2. 36 years

  3. 40 years

  4. 48 years

  5. 42 years


Solution

The correct option is C

40 years


Let the mother's present age be x years. then, the person's present age = 25x years

(25x+8)=12(x+8)x(2x+40)=5(x+8)x=40
