Consider Deepinder’s present age to be = x
Then her father’s age is = 6x

It is given that Deepinder ‘s father’s age will be twice the age of Maninder’s age after 10 years Maninder’s age after 10 years = ½(6x + 10) = 3x + 5

Also given that Maninder’s eight birthdays was celebrated two years before. Maninder’s age after 10 years = 8 + 12 = 20

3x + 5 = 20 x = 15/3 = 5

Deepinder ‘s present age = 5 years

Deepinder’s present age 5 years

5 years

5 yr 8 months

5yrs

Solution:

6d=f (1)

f+10=2(m+10) ==> f=2m+10 (2)

m=8+2=10 (3)

From 2 nd 3

f=30

Therfore d=5

Answer: 5 years old.

5 years

Let deepender’s present age is D, her father is F yrs old and Maninder is M

D=F/6

F+10= 2(M+10) , so F=2M+10

2 yrs ago maninder was 8 yrs old this means now he is 10 yrs old, so M=10

so, F = 30, this gives

D= 30/6 = 5 yrs old.

perfect answer..:)
