After 25 years, Rama will be 5 times as old as he is now. Find his present age.

Answer :

Let the Rama’s present age be x yr.

Then, Rama’s age after 25 yr = (x + 25) yr.

It is given that after 25 yr, Rama’s age will be 5 times his present age.

Therefore, the equation is x + 25 = 5x

25 = 5x – x

25 = 4x

[Divide by 4 both sides]

Hence, the present age of Rama is yr.
