A father said to his son, "I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth". If the father's age is 38 years now, the son's age five years back was:

A. 14 years B. 19 years
C. 33 years D. 38 years

Explanation:

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

2x = 38.

x = 19.

Son's age 5 years back (19 - 5) = 14 years. abdulsaboor Posts: 2004

A is two years older than B who is twice as old as C. If the total of the ages of A, B and C be 27, the how old is B?

A. 7 B. 8
C. 9 D. 10
E. 11

Explanation:

Let C's age be x years. Then, B's age = 2x years. A's age = (2x + 2) years.

(2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27

5x = 25

x = 5.

Hence, B's age = 2x = 10 years. abdulsaboor Posts: 2004
