Answer :

Let Deepika's age be x and Vikas’s age be y.

Since Vikas is 3 years older than Deepika


Therefore, Vikas's age y = x + 3 ……(1)


6 years ago


Vikas’s age = x + 3 – 6


= x – 3


Deepika’s age = x – 6


Vikas’s age was 4 times Deepika’s age


Therefore, Vikas’s age


x – 3 = 4 (x – 6)


x – 3 = 4x – 24


– 3 + 24 = 4x – x


21 = 3x


x = 7


From (1)


y = x + 3


y = 7 + 3


y = 10


Therefore, Deepika’s age is 7 years and Vikas’s age is 10 years.
