Sudesh is twice as old as Seema is. If 6 years is Substracted from Seema's age and 4 years are added to Sudesh's age, Sudesh will be 4 times Seema's

age. How old were they 3 years ago?

x=2y

x+4=4(y-6)=4y-24

2y+4=4y-24

28=2y

y=14 so x=28

so now their ages are 14 and 28

before 3 years

Sudesh's age was 25 and Seema's age was 11

Then Sudesh's age = 2

Their present ages =

(

4

4

2

= 14

Therefore Seema's age = 14

and Sudesh's age = 28

Hence, 3 years ago Seema = 14 - 3 = 11 years old

3 years ago Sudesh = 28 - 3 = 25 years old
