Let her age b xyrs

after 5 years she will be of (x+5 yrs)

a/q x+5=3(x-9)

or x+5=3x-27

hence x=16 yrs

after 5 years she will be of (x+5 yrs)

a/q x+5=3(x-9)

or x+5=3x-27

hence x=16 yrs

So,her age after 5 yrs will be (x+5)yrs

And before 9 yrs she was (x-9) yrs

as given,

her age after 5 yrs=3(her age before 9 yrs)

x+5=3(x-9)

or,x+5=3x-27

or,2x=32

or,x=16

hence,she is 16 yrs old now!!
