Naresh is 5 years older than babitha.Five years ago,Naresh was as twice as old as Babitha. find their present ages.

Hi!
Here is the answer to your question.
 
Let the present age of Babitha be x
Present age of Naresh = 5 + x
Babitha’s age five years ago = x – 5
Naresh age five years ago = 5 + x – 5 = x
According to question,
x = 2(x – 5)
x = 2x – 10
–2x + x = –10
x = –10
x = 10
 
Babitha’s present age = 10 years
Naresh’s present age = 10 + 5 = 15 years

Cheers!
