What are their present ages?Let Shobo's present age be x Shobo's mother present age = 6x Five years from now, Shobo's age = x + 5 Shobo's mother age = 6x + 5 Given, Five years from now Shobo's age = 1/3 Shobo's mother present age x + 5 = 1/3 × 6x x + 5 = 2x 2x = x + 5 2x – x = 5 x = 5 ∴ Shobo's Present age = x = 5 years Shobo's mother present age = 6x = 6 × 5 = 30 years
