let the present age of Raj = x , after 8 years Age of Raj = x+8 , before two years , Age of Raj = x-2 , therefore according to problem , x+8 = 3(x-2) => x+8 = 3x - 6 => x+8 +6 = 3x => x+14 = 3x => 3x-x = 14 => 2x=14 => x=14/2 => x=7 ..hence age of raj = 7 years

Answer to ur question is a) 7. solution :- let raj's present age be x then equation = (x+8)=3(x-2) =x+8 = 3x-6 =x-3x= -6-8 = -2x = -14 both the minus signs are cut because they are similiar = 2x=14 = x=14/2 =x=7. so therefore raj's present age is 7yrs. hope this helps u !!!!!!!

Et the present age of Raj = x , after 8 years Age of Raj = x+8 ,
before two years , Age of Raj = x-2 , therefore according to problem ,
x+8 = 3(x-2) => x+8 = 3x - 6 => x+8 +6 = 3x => x+14 = 3x
=> 3x-x = 14 => 2x=14 => x=14/2 => x=7 ..hence age of raj = 7
years
