If zeba were younger by 5 years than what she really is then the square of her age would have been 11 more than five times her actually age. What is her age now?

then

(x-5)²=11+5x

x²+25-10x=11+5x

x²-15x+14=0

x²-14x-x+14=0

x(x-14)-1(x-14)=0

x=1 or x=14

her age will be 14 yrs because if she was 1 yea rold the 5 years younger cannot happen
