Q9. The ratio of the ages of Ram and Rahim 10 years ago was 1 : 3. The ratio of their ages five years hence will be 2 : 3. Then the ratio of their present ages is.

1 : 2
4 : 7
3 : 5
2 : 5
4 : 5
Solution:

Let the age of Ram and Rahim 10 years ago be x and 3x years respectively.
After 5 Years from now,

⇒ 6x + 30 = 3x + 45
⇒ 3x = 45 – 30 = 15
⇒ x = 5
∴ Ratio of their present ages = (x+10) : (3x+10)
= 15 : 25 = 3 : 5

Let the common multiple be ‘x
Now, 5x – x = 3600
∴ 4x = 3600 ⇒ x = 900
A’s share = 3x = 3 × 900 = 2700
B’s share = x = 900
A’s share + B’s share
= 2700 + 900 = 3600

2 : 1
5 : 11
7 : 5
2 : 3
3 : 5
Solution:

Lest first and second part of the number be x and y, respectively. Then,
5x + 11y = 7(x+y)
⇒ 11y –7y = 7x – 5x
⇒ 4y = 2x
∴ x : y = 2 : 1

3 : 5
Solution:

Sudhir’s present age = 2x years
Pranav’s present age = 3x years
∴ 3x – 2x = 6 ⇒ x = 6
∴ Required ratio = (2 × 6 + 6) : (3 × 6 + 6)
= 18 : 24 = 3 : 4
