1.
﻿C is Chandrika
M is Chandrika's Mom

At present time,
﻿age of C = x
age of M = y

Before 10 years,
age of C = (x - 10)
age of M = (y - 10)

After 10 years
age of C = (x + 10)
age of M = (y + 10)

now,
(y - 10) = 4 * (x - 10) => 4 * x - y = 30
(y + 10) = 2 * (x + 10) => 2 * x - y = -10

Solving above two equations, x = 20, y = 50

2. Three consecutive no. x - 1, x and x + 1
Now, (x - 1) + 2 * (x + 1) = 4 * x - 7
=> 3 * x + 1 = 4 * x - 7
=> x = 8
So, no. are 7, 8, 9
Thanks#PM using....It is great help
Thanks#AvmnuSng:-)
I solved 1st ques... you can check it
ya good
Thanks

1. Let Chandrika's mothers age now = x,
10 yrs ago her age= x-10
10 yr hence her age= x+10
ATQ       10 yr ago  Chandrika's age = (x-10)/4 yr
ATQ      10 yr hence her age = (x+10)/2
Then we have (x-10)/4 + 20 = (x+10)/2
Solving    x -10 + 80 = 2x +20
x = 50
Present age of Chandrika's mother is 50 yrs.

2. Let the consecutive no.s be x-1, x and x+1
ATQ  (x-1) + 2(x+1) = 4x -7
⇒    x-1 + 2x +2 = 4x -7
⇒    x = 8
Then we have the numbers  8-1, 8, 8+1 i.e 7,8,9
