Mrs Trivedi is three times her son's age. After four years she will be 22 years elder to her son. Find the present ages of Mrs Trivedi and her son.



The Brainliest Answer!
Let Son's present age = x
So, Mrs.Trivedi's present age = 3x
after four years
Son's age = x+4
Mrs Trivedi's age = 3x+4
According to question,
3x+4 = (x+4)+22
3x+4 = x+26
Therefore, son's present age is 11years
ans Mrs Trivedi's age = 3*11=33 years
