Question

Mohit's mother is 47 years older than him. The product of their ages 8 years from now will be 860. The equation representing this situation is .

- (x+8)(x−55)=860
- (x+8)(x+55)=860
- (x−8)(x+55)=860

Solution

The correct option is **B** (x+8)(x+55)=860

Let's take Mohit's age = x years

Hence, his mother's age = x+47

8 years from now:

Mohit's age = x+8

Age of Mohit's mother will be = x+47+8=x+55

The product of their ages 8 years from now will be 860.

(x+8)(x+55)=860

Let's take Mohit's age = x years

Hence, his mother's age = x+47

8 years from now:

Mohit's age = x+8

Age of Mohit's mother will be = x+47+8=x+55

The product of their ages 8 years from now will be 860.

(x+8)(x+55)=860
