41. At the time of marriage, a man was 6 years elder to his wife. 12 years after their marriage, his age is 6/5 times the age of his wife. What was wife's age at the time of marriage?

| | | |

Explanation:

lets assume wifes age= x years.
So, husband age = (x+6) years.
After 12 years of marriage
wifes age = (x+12) Years.
husbands age = (x+6+12) Years = (x+18) Years.
6/5(x+12)=(x+18)
=> 6x + 72 = 5x + 90
=> x = 18 Years.

Explanation:

Lets assume daughter's present age = x Years.
So, Father's present age = (5/2)*x Years.
5 years ago father's age = (5x/2)-5 = 3(x-5) Years.
Therefore,x=20 years

47. Total of ages of A,B and C at present is 90 years. If ratio of this ages is 2 : 3 : 4 what will be the age of C after 5 years?

| | | |

Explanation:

Given, ratio of A, B and C are 2 : 3 : 4
=> 2x+3x+4x=90
=> x=10
So, c=40
After 5 years
40+5 = 45 Years

48. The ratio of ages of A and B at present is 2:3. After five years the ratio of their ages will be 3:4 What is the present age of A in years?

| | | |

Explanation:

Ratio of ages fo A and B = 2:3
After 5 years their ages ratio = 3:4
=> ( 2x+5 ) /( 3x+5) = 3/4 => 8x+20=9x+15
=> x=5
So, Present age of A = 2x = (2*5) = 10 years.

49. Ten years ago, P was half of Q in age. If the ratio of their present ages is 3:4, what will be the total of their present ages?

| | | |

Explanation:

Ratio of their present ages = 3:4
So, the present age of P and Q will be 3x and 4x.
Given, Ten years ago P was half of Q in age.
=> (3x - 10) = (4x - 10)/2
=> 6x - 20 = 4x - 10
=> 2x = 10
=> x = 5
So, Total of their present ages = (3x + 4x) = 7x = 7*5 = 35

50. 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?

| | | |

Explanation:

Lets assume the age of C = x years
So B's age = 2x
A's age = 2x+2
Given, sum of their (A,B,C) ages = 27 years.
=> x+2x+2x+2 = 27
=> 5x=25
=> x = 5
So, B's age = 10 years.
