Problem On Ages Tricks with Solution for Competitive Exams: 


Example 1: Present age 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?

(A) 24

(B) 27

(C) 40

(D) None of these 

Solution:

In this question, we have to get Anand present age.

The ratio of Sameer and Anand is 5: 4.

Short trick:

We have to divide all the options by the ratio of Anand = 4. 

Option (A) and (C) values 24 and 27 are fully divided by ratio of Anand.

Next,

Statement is Three years hence, the ratio of their ages will become 11: 9.

So, we have to add 3 year in Option (A) and Option (C).

Then the option (A) and option (C) Values are 

= 24+3 year = 27 years, 

= 40+3 years = 43 years,

Next,

Option (A) and (C) are divided of ratio of Anand = 9

Option (A) is fully divided by ratio of Anand 9. 

So, our answer is (A).


Example 2:  Present age of A and B are in the ratio of 5: 6 respectively. Seven years hence this ratio will become 6: 7 respectively. What is A’s present age in years?

(A) 35

(B) 42

(C) 49

(D) None of these 

Solution.

In this question, we have to get A present age.

The ratio of A and B is 5: 6.

Short trick 

We have to divide all the options by the ratio of A = 5. 

Option (A) value 35 is fully divided by ratio of A.

Next,

Statement is Seven years hence; the ratio of their ages will become 6: 7.

So, we have to added 7 year in Option and Option (A).

Then the option (A) Value is

= 35+7 year = 42 years, 

Next,

Option (A) is divided of ratio of A = 6

Option (A) is fully divided by ratio of Anand 6. 

So, our answer is (A).


Example 3: The age of two persons differ by 16 years. If 6 years ago, the elder one be 3 times as old as the younger one, find their present ages.

Solution 

Let the age of the younger person be X years.

Then, age of the elder person = (x+16) years.

⸫ 3(X -16) = (X+16-6) ↔ 3X – 18

= X+10 ↔2X = 28 ↔ X=14.

Hence, their present age are 14 years and 30 years.

Example 4: The present age of a father is 3 years more than three times the age of his son. Three years hence, father’s age will be 10 years more than twice the age of the son. Find the present age of the father.

Solution 

⸫ Let the son’s present age be x years. Then, Father’s present age = (3X+3) years.

⸫ (3x+3+3) = 2(x+3)+10 

↔ 3X+6) = (3×10+3) years = 33 years.
