Question

Pranay's father is 7 times his age now . Two years later his father will be 5 times as old as his son will be . Find their present ages ?

Solution

Let pranay's age be x

his father's age =7x

two years later

5(x+2)=7x+2

5x+10=7x+2

8=2x

x=4

pranay's age is 4years

and his fathers =4×7=28years

his father's age =7x

two years later

5(x+2)=7x+2

5x+10=7x+2

8=2x

x=4

pranay's age is 4years

and his fathers =4×7=28years
