Let the age of  jayesh be x.
and the difference between the age of anil and jayesh be y years

Now the age of anil is   x+y
and the age of prashant is x-y    [since jayesh is as younger to anil as he is older to prashant]

now [age of prashant] +[age of anil] = 48
x+y + x-y = 48
2x = 48
x= 24
age of  jayesh is 24.

thanks sunitee.but can u solve it by using only one variable rather using xand y both.
