Let the Present age Of Jackson (in Years) = x

Therefore , Jackson's age 7 years ago = x - 7

and Jackson's age after 20 years = x+20

According to question ,

x - 7 = 2/5 (x+20)

5(x - 7 )= 2(x+20)

5x - 35 = 2x +40

5x - 2x = 40+35

3x =75

x= 75/3

x= 25

Hope This helps You!!

Thank You!!

Cheers !!!
