1) A mother is twice as old as her son. If 20 years ago, the age of the mother was 10 times the age of the son, what is the present age of the mother?

5) Ten years ago, the sum of ages of a father and his son was 34 years. If the ratio of present ages of the father and son is 7:2, find the present age of the son.

8) Age of father is seven times the age of his son. In the next 10 years, the age of father will be three times the age of his son. What is the age of father now?

9) Twelve years ago, Budh was twice as old as Badri. If the ratio of their present ages is 4:3 respectively, find the difference between their present ages.

Let 12 years ago age of Badri was X years and age of Budh was 2X.

So, present age of Badri = X + 12

And, present age of Budh = 2X + 12

As per question;

(2x+12)/(x+12) = 4/3

6X + 36 = 4X + 48

2X = 12

X = 6

Present age of Badri = 6 + 12 = 18 years

Present age of Budh = 2*6 +12= 24 years

Required difference between their ages = 24 – 18 = 6 years

10) Two years ago the ratio of ages of Naresh and Suresh was 3:2. If one year hence, the ratio of their ages will be 7:5, what is the sum of their present ages?
