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
