# Problems on Ages Questions

A) 14 | B) 19 |

C) 33 | D) 38 |

Explanation:

Let the son's present age be x years .Then, (38 - x) = x => x= 19.

Son's age 5 years back = (19 - 5) = 14 years

A) 12 | B) 13 |

C) 14 | D) 15 |

Explanation:

(A+B) - (B+C) = 12

A - C = 12.

C is younger than A by 12 years.

A) 19 | B) 29 |

C) 39 | D) 49 |

Explanation:

Let B's present age = x years. Then, A's present age = (x + 9) years.

(x + 9) + 10 = 2(x - 10)

=> x + 19 = 2x - 20

=> x =39.

A) 5 | B) 10 |

C) 15 | D) 20 |

Explanation:

Let the present ages of son and father be x and (60 -x) years respectively.

Then, (60 - x) - 5= 4(x - 5)

55 - x = 4x - 20

5x = 75 => x = 15

A) Father = 50; Son =14 | B) Father = 40; Son =24 |

C) Father = 60; Son =4 | D) Father = 48; Son =16 |

Explanation:

Let the present age of the man be 'P' and son be 'Q',

Given, P + Q = 64 or Q = (64 - P)

Now the man says "I am five times as old as you were, when I was as old as you are",

So, P = 5[B - (P - Q)]

We get 6P = 10Q,

Substitute value for Q,

6P = 10(64 - P),

Therefore P = 40, Q = 24.
