Let Father`s age be `x` yrs Then Ram`s age will be x/2 yrs 20 years ago father`s age = (x-20) yrs 20 years ago Ram`s age = (x/2) -20 = (x-40)/2 Given that 20 yrs ago father`s age was 6 times Ram`s age ⇒ (x-20) = 6 × (x-40)/2 ⇒ (x-20) = (6x - 240)/2 ⇒ 2(x-20) = 6x-240 ⇒ 2x - 40 = 6x -240 ⇒ 2x - 6x = - 240 +40 ⇒ -4x = -200 ⇒ 4x = 200 ⇒ x = 200/4 ∴ x = 50 Ram`s age = x/2 = 50/2 = 25 Therefore Ram is 25 years old
