Present ages of Anu and Raj are in the ratio 4:5. Eight years from now the ratio of their ages will be 5:6. Find their present ages.

let the age of Anu be 4x years and age of Raj be 5x years.

after 8 years age of Anu will be (4x+8)years and age of Raj will be (5x+8)years

according to question:

therefore the present age of Anu=4*8=32 years

the present age of Raj = 5*8=40 years
