Example #1
The ratio between the present age of Sabir and Subir is 4 : 7. After 3 years Subir’s age will be 52. What was the age of Sabir 4 years before?

1. 22 Years
2. 24 Years
3. 26 Years
4. 28 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Subir’s present age is (52 – 3) = 49 years.
Present age of Sabir is 4 x 49 / 7 = 28 years.
So, 4 years before Sabir’s age was ( 28 – 4 ) = 24 years.

Example #2
Suman and Bikash is 50 years and 70 years old. How many years ago their age ratio was 3 : 5 ?

1. 20 Years
2. 25 Years
3. 30 Years
4. 35 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, their age ratio was 3 : 5 before Y years.
So,
50 – Y / 70 – Y = 3 / 5
5 ( 50 – Y ) = 3 ( 70 – Y )
250 – 5Y = 210 – 3Y
2Y = 40
Y = 20 years.

Example #3
The present ratio of ages of P and Q is 4 : 6. If the sum of present ages of P and Q is 50 years. Find the ages of P and Q before 4 years.

1. P = 12 Years and Q = 22 Years
2. P = 14 Years and Q = 24 Years
3. P = 16 Years and Q = 26 Years
4. P = 18 Years and Q = 28 Years

How to Solve
Let, ages of P and Q is X.
So, P and Q ages are 4X and 6C Gradually.
Now according to question Sum of present ages,
4X + 6X = 50
10X = 50
X = 5 years.

And then the present age of P is 4X = 4 x 5 = 20 years.
So, 4 years ago the age of P was ( 20 – 4 ) = 16 years.

Present age of Q is 6X = 6 x 5 = 30 years.
So, 4 years ago the age of Q was ( 30 – 4 ) = 26 years.

Example #4
Reeya is 28 years old and Rajib is 12 years. In how many years will Reeya be twice as old as Rajib?

1. 1 Years
2. 2 Years
3. 3 Years
4. 4 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, Reeya be in X years.
Then,
( 28 + X ) = 2 ( 12 + X )
28 + X = 24 + 2X
X = 4 years.

Example #5
The ratio of ages of P and Q after 5 years will be 3 : 5. If the sum of ages of P and Q at present is 38 years. Find the ages of P and Q before 5 years.

1. P = 10 Years and Q = 20 Years
2. P = 8 Years and Q = 20 Years
3. P = 8 Years and Q = 18 Years
4. P = 6 Years and Q = 14 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, the ages of P and Q are 3X and 5X respectively after 5 years.
Then,
( 3X – 5 ) + ( 5X – 5 ) = 38
8X – 10 = 38
8X = 48
X = 6

The ages of P after 5 years
= 6 x 3
= 18 years.

Then the ages of Q after 5 years
= 6 x 5
= 30 years.

The ages of P and Q before 5 years is
P = ( 18 – 10 ) = 8 years
Q = ( 30 – 10 ) = 20 years.

Example #6
Suresh and Sanjay are two friend and they are 30 years and 50 years old. How many years ago was the ratio of their ages is 2 : 4 ?

1. 18 Years
2. 12 Years
3. 8 Years
4. 10 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, their age ratio was 2 : 4, Y years ago.
So,
30 – Y / 50 – Y = 2 / 4
4 ( 30 – Y ) = 2 ( 50 – Y )
120 – 4Y = 100 – 2Y
Y = 10
