# State whether the statements are true (T) or false (F).

Sum of the ages of Anju and her mother is 65 years. If Anju’s present age is y years then her mother’s age before 5 years is (60 – y) years.

Answer :

True

let us assume Anju’s mother present age is ‘x’ years.

given Anju’s present age is ‘y’ years.

According to the question.

⇒ x + y = 65

⇒ x = (65-y)

⇒ Before 5 years Anju’s age was (y-5) years and Anju’s mother’s age was (x-5) years

⇒ Anju’s mother age before 5 years = (65-y)-5

= (60-y) years.

⇒ Hence, it is true.
