Therefore, Son age = 5x, Mother age = 25x, Person age = 50x.

Thus we get, x+5x+25x+50x = 81

A) 48 yrs B) 42 yrs

w+x+y = 43x3 = 129 ---(i) and
w+y+z = 49x3 = 147 ---(ii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii), (w+y+z) - (w+x+y)=147 -129 , z- x =18 ---(iii)
Given Rohit's age => z = 54, so from (iii), x = 54-18 = 36
