Q. 1 C4.2( 18 Votes )

# Ajay is younger than Vijay by 5 years. Sum of their ages is 25 years. What is Ajay's age?A. 20B. 15C. 10D. 5

Let Ajay's age be 'x' years and Vijay's age be 'y' years.

Given, Ajay is younger than Vijay by 5 years

x = y - 5 eq.[1]

Also, Sum of their ages is 25 years,

x + y = 25

From eq.[1]

y - 5 + y = 25

2y = 30

y = 15

Putting this in eq.[1]

x = 15 - 5 = 10

Age of Ajay = x = 10 Years

Age of Vijay = y = 15 Years
