Q:

A person's present age is two-fifth of the age of his mother. After 8 years, he will be one-half of the age of his mother. How old is the mother at present ?

A) 36 yrs B) 38 yrs
C) 40 yrs D) 42 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 40 yrs

Explanation:

Let the mother's present age be x years.

Then, the person's present age = 2/5 x years.

(2x/5 + 8) = 1/2 (x + 8)

2(2x + 40) = 5(x + 8) => x = 40.

A) 2 yrs B) 12 yrs
C) 18 yrs D) 6 yrs

Q:

Ratio of the ages of Mahesh and Nilesh is 5 : x. Mahesh is 18 years younger to Ramesh. After nine years Ramesh will be 47 years old. If the difference between the ages of Mahesh and Nilesh is same as the age of Ramesh, what is the value of x ?

A) 11.8 B) 12.9
C) 13.7 D) 14.5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 14.5

Explanation:

Let the present ages of Mahesh, Nilesh and Ramesh be k, l and m respectively.
k/l = 5/x ------ (1)
k = m - 18 ------ (2)
m + 9 = 47 ------ (3)
k - l = m ----- (4)
(3) => m = 47 - 9 = 38 years
(2) => k = 38 -18 = 20 years
(1) => 20/l = 5/x => l = 4x
(4) => 4x - 20 = 38
=> 4x = 58 => x = 14.5
