Let vihaan's age be x.
dravid's age=33 yrs.
this is 3 times as old as vihan was when dravid's age was x.
∴vihaan's age in the past = 33/3=11
let the difference between dravid's past age and present age be y.
∴x+y=33---------- (1)
& also 11+y=x (because 11 is vihaan's past age)-------------(2)
From (2),
Adding (1) and (2),
and x = 22
∴Vihaan's age today is 22yrs.

hope it helps and pls mark this as best answer. :)
