41 - 5 = 36 age of your father now.
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

Now we are in the year 2004. The ratio of ages of my father, my mother, and my younger brother is 12:9:1. Five years from now, my father will be 41 years old. In what year was my younger brother born?

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
x /z = 12/1 .......................(Ist)
After 5 Years,
my fathers age = x+5 =41
or x=41 -5 =36
hence my fathers Present age = 36 years
From Equation Ist ,

x/z =12 /1
or z= 36/12
or z = 3
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!!!
