Q6) The present ages of three persons in proportions 4 : 7 : 9. Eight years ago, the sum of their ages was 56. Find their present ages (in years).
A) 8, 20, 28
B) 16, 28, 36
C) 20, 35, 45
D) None of these
Then, (4x – 8) + (7x – 8) + (9x – 8) = 56
20x = 80
x = 4.
Their present ages are 4x = 16 years, 7x = 28 years and 9x = 36 years
Q7) When Rajesh was born, his father age was 29 years older than his Brother and his Mother was 25 years older than his Sister. If his Brother is 2 years elder than his Sister. After 6 years the average age of the family is 20. Then what is the age of Mother when Rajesh was born?
Present age – 4x+58
After 6 years
4x+58+30 = 4x+88
4x+88 = 100
x = 3
Mothers age = 25+x = 28.
Q8) The sum of present ages of Ashok, Anil and Ajay is 75 years.If 5 years ago the ratio of their ages was 3 : 4 : 5, What is the present age of Anil?
A) 26 Years
B) 25 Years
C) 32 Years
D) 65 Years
years. Then, their present ages are ( 3x + 5), (4x + 5) abd ( 5x + 5) years.
Now, 3x +5 + 4x +5 + 5x + 5 = 75 => 12x = 60 x = 5
Hence, present age of Anil = 4x + 5 = 4 x 5 + 5 = 25 years.
Q9) The ages of two persons differ by 16 years. 6 years ago, the elder one was 3 times as old as the younger one. What are their present ages of the elder person?
of the younger person = x 16 (x 6) = 3 (x-16-6) => x 6 = 3x 66 => 2x = 60
=> x = 60/2 = 30
Q10) Mindy’s current age is 3 times that of her daughter, Cindy. 4 years ago, Mindy’s age was 4 times that of her daughter, what will be Cindy’s age 5 years from now?
