Lawl we dont understand the qtion :P

The Brainliest Answer!

Then Ram`s age will be x/2 yrs

20 years ago father`s age = (x-20) yrs

20 years ago Ram`s age = (x/2) -20 = (x-40)/2

Given that 20 yrs ago father`s age was 6 times Ram`s age

⇒ (x-20) = 6 × (x-40)/2

⇒ (x-20) = (6x - 240)/2

⇒ 2(x-20) = 6x-240

⇒ 2x - 40 = 6x -240

⇒ 2x - 6x = - 240 +40

⇒ -4x = -200

⇒ 4x = 200

⇒ x = 200/4

∴ x = 50

Ram`s age = x/2

= 50/2

= 25

Therefore Ram is 25 years old
