# The Sum of the Ages of Anup and His Father is 100. When Anup is as Old as His Father Now, He Will Be Five Times as Old as His Son Anuj is Now. Anuj Will Be Eight Years Older than Anup is Now, - Mathematics

Numerical

The sum of the ages of Anup and his father is 100. When Anup is as old as his father now, he will be five times as old as his son Anuj is now. Anuj will be eight years older than Anup is now, when Anup is as old as his father. What are their ages now?

#### Solution

Let Anup's age be x years.
Therefore, his father's age will be (100 - x) years.
When Anupis as old as his father after (100 - 2x) years,
$\text{ Anuj's age }= \left( \frac{100 - x}{5} + 100 - 2x \right) \text{ years }= \frac{600 - 11x}{5} \text{ years. }$
Again, when Anup is as old as his father,
Anuj's age = x + 8 .
Now,
$\frac{600 - 11x}{5} = x + 8$
or 600 - 11x = 5x + 40
or 16x = 560
or x = 35 .
Thus, Anup's age = 35 years
Anup's father's age = 100 - x = 100 - 35 = 65 years
Anuj's age = x + 8 = 35 + 8 = 43 years

Is there an error in this question or solution?
