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.
