Anu is four year older than sunil
If sunil's age = x
anu's age = x+4

Anu was 3 times sunil's age 8 yeas ago
(x+4) - 8 = 3(x-8)
⇒ x - 4 = 3x - 24
⇒ x - 3x = -24 + 4
⇒ -2x = -20
⇒ x = -20/-2 = 10

Sunil's age = 10years
Anu's age = 10+4 = 14years

Let the age of Sunil be = x years
Then Anu`s age = x+4 years
eight years ago sunil`s age = (x-8) years
eight years ago anu`s age = (x-8) + 4 years
it is also given that the age of Anu WAS 3 times sunil`s age
⇒3(x - 8)
∴x-8 +4 = 3(x - 8)
⇒x-4 = 3x -24
⇒x -3x = -24 + 4
⇒-2x = -20
⇒x = -20/-2
∴x = 10
∴The age of Sunil = x =10 years
Anu`s age = x + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14 years.
