thank you
Let the present age of the son be x years .
Then, age of the father is 4x years.
Four years later, 
age of son will be (x+4) years.
Then age of father will be (4x+4) years.
Acc. to the Question,
After 4 years, the age of father will be 3 times the son's age.
∴  4x+4 = 3(x+4)
  ⇒4x + 4 = 3x + 12
  ⇒4x - 3x = 12-4
  ⇒x = 8.
Hence, present age of son is x=8 years & the present age of father is 4x=4*8 years or 32 years.
