Your age = X years mothers age = Y years

your mothers age is 5 times your age means

Y = 5 * X

sum of two ages = X + Y = 60 substitute the value of Y

X + 5 X = 60 => 6 X = 60

__X = 10 years__

__Y = 5 X = 50 Years__

your mothers age is 5 times your age means

Y = 5 * X

sum of two ages = X + Y = 60 substitute the value of Y

X + 5 X = 60 => 6 X = 60

Then, my age = 5x years.

Sum of both of our ages = 60 years.

Therefore, x + 5x = 60

or, 6x = 60

or, x = 60/6 = 10

Hence, my mother's age = 10 years. My age = 50 years.
