## 5. Present ages of Simmi and Anu are in the ratio of 5 : 4 respectively. Three years hence, the ratio of their ages will become 11 : 9 respectively, What is Anu's present age in years?

Let the present ages of Simmi and Anu be 5x years and 4x years respectively.

Then, [5X + 3] / [4X + 3] =11/9

By Solving above eq. x = 6

So Anu's present age = 4X = 24 years
