Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Total age of a family of 5 members, 3 yr ago = 5 × 17 = 85 yr
∴ Total present age of a family of 5 members = 85 + 5 × 3
= 85 + 15 = 100 yr
total present age of a family of 6 members = 6 × 17 = 102 yr
∴ Present age of the baby = (102 – 100) = 2 yr

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the ages of two persons be 4x and 7x respectively.
7x – 4x = 30
⇒ 3x = 30
∴ x = 10
Age of first person = 4 × 10 = 40 yr
Age of second person = 7 × 10 = 70 yr
Sum of their ages = 40 + 70 = 110 yr
S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let the son’s present age be x yr.
∴ Father’s present age = 3x yr.
After 15 yr, 3x + 15 = 2 (x + 15)
⇒ 3x + 15 = 2x + 30
⇒ x = 30 – 15 = 15
∴ Sum of their present ages
= x + 3x = 4x
= 4 × 15 = 60 yr

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. average age of 5 boys = 16 yr
Sum of ages of 5 boys = 16 × 5 = 80 yr
Average age of 4 boys = 16 yr 3 months
= 16 yr + 3/12 yr = 16 yr + 1/4 yr
Sum of ages of 4 boys
= 4 × (16 + 1/4) yr
= 64 + 1 = 65 yr
∴ Age of 5th boy
= Sum of ages of 5 boys – Sum of ages of 4 boys
= 80 – 65
= 15 yr

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Average age of 10 members = 20 yr
Sum of the present ages of 10 members
= 20 × 10 = 200 yr
Total age of 9 members 10 yr ago
= 200 – (9 × 10 + Age of the youngest member)
= 200 – (9 × 10 + 10)
= 200 – 100 = 100 yr
∴ Average = 100/9 = 11 1/9 yr

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. (8a +2x – 30 -34)/8 = a + 3
8a +2x -64 = 8a +24
2x =88
= 88/2 = 44 yr

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. 4 yr ago,
Average age of husband and wife = 25 yr
Sum of ages of husband and wife 4 yr ago
= 25 × 2 = 50
Sum of present ages of both
= 50 + 8 = 58 yr
Average age of all three persons = 20
Sum of the present ages of husband, wife and child
= 3 × 20 = 60 yr
∴ Child’s present age = 60 – 58 = 2 yr
