The product of Ramu's age (in years) five years ago and his age (in years) nine years later is 15. Determine Ramu's present age.

Open in App
Solution

Let the present age of Ramu be x years.

Ramu's age 5 years ago = (x – 5) years

Ramu's age 9 years hence = (x + 9) years

Given, Ramu's age 5 years ago × Ramu's age 9 years hence = 15

Thus, the present age of Ramu is 6 years
