Q:

Two boys are playing on a ground. Both the boys are less than 10 years old. Age of the younger boy is equal to the cube root of the product of the age of the two boys. If we place the digit representing the age of the younger boy to the left of the digit representing the age of the elder boy, we get the age of the father of the younger boy. Similarly, we place the digit representing the age of the elder boy to the left of the digit representing the age of the younger boy and divide the figure by 2, we get the age of the mother of the younger boy. The mother of the younger boy is younger than his father by 3 years. Then, what are the ages of elder and younger boys ?

A) E = 15 & Y = 3 B) E = 14 & Y = 12
C) E = 40 & Y = 22 D) E = 4 & Y = 2

Answer:   D) E = 4 & Y = 2



Explanation:

Let the the age of the elder boy = E

 

Let the the age of the younger boy = Y

 

Given that Y = cube root of EY

 


=> Y3 = EY => E = Y2 .....(1)
By the condition of number replacement the age of the father is YE

 

The Mother's age = EY/2

 

But she is 3 years less than father => EY/2 + 3 = YE
2YE = EY + 6 ......(2)

 

Then now from the given options we can identify which satisfies the all the conditions.

 

Here Y =2 and E = 4 satisfies all the conditions.
