The Brainliest Answer!

EQUATION :

(x + 15) = 4 * ( x -15 )

x + 15 = 4x - 60

x - 4x = -60 - 15

-3x = - 75

x = 75/3

= 25 yrs

SO, his present age is 25 yrs..

Let the present age be x

a/q x+15=4(x-15)

⇒x+15=4x-60

⇒-3x=-75

⇒x=25

so his present age is 25

a/q x+15=4(x-15)

⇒x+15=4x-60

⇒-3x=-75

⇒x=25

so his present age is 25
