Question

Jacob was married 12 years ago. Today his age is 127 times his age at the time of marriage. If the present age of her daughter is one-sixth of his age, how old was she 5 years ago?

  1. 6 years

  2. 7 years

  3. 2 years

  4. 4 years

  5. Cannot be determined


Solution

The correct option is D
4 years
Let Jacob’s age at the time of his marriage be equal to x years
Then his present age will be = x + 12 years
Now, x + 12 = 97 27 x = 12  x = 42 
So, his daughter’s present age will be = 16 × (42 + 12) = 9 years
Therefore, five years ago his daughter was 9 - 5 = 4 years old
