assume you age be 9x and your brother age be x and you father be 12x.

Now, 12x = 36 therefore x= 36/12= 3

So, your age = 9x= 9*3= 27

your brothers age= x= 3

Solution :

let my fathers age (in years) = x

my mothers age (in years ) = y

and my younger brothers age (in years ) = z

according to question,

x:y:z =12:9:1

After 5 Years,

my fathers age = x+5 =41

or x=41 -5 =36

From Equation Ist ,

or z= 36/12

or

Hence My Younger Brother is 3 years Old in 2004 , hence was born in 2001

Hope u Understood the Solution !!!

Please mark as best !!

Thank You!!!
