Discussion :: Problems on Ages

Present ages of Sameer and Anand are in the ratio of 5 : 4 respectively. Three years hence, the ratio of their ages will become 11 : 9 respectively. What is Anand's present age in years?
Answer : Option A
Explanation :
Let the present ages of Sameer and Anand be 5x years and 4x years respectively.
Then,\(\frac { 5X+3 } { 4X+3 } \)=\(\frac { 11 } {9 } \)
9(5x + 3) = 11(4x + 3)
45x + 27 = 44x + 33
45x  44x = 33  27
x = 6.
Anand's present age = 4x = 24 years.
