Arithmetic Aptitude :: Problems on Ages
9. Five years ago the average age of a family of six members was 20 years. A baby is born and now the average age is 22 years. How old is the baby at present ?
Lets assume the age of all the 6 people = 20 years.
After 5 years i.e. now their ages will be 25 years.
Total age of all the 6 will be = 25*6 = 150
Including baby's age, avg is 22 years
Let x be the age of baby.
(150+x)/7 = 22
=> x = 4 years.
