# rohit is 24 years older than his son raju. in 2 years rohit will be twice the age of raju . calculate their present ages

Let x be the age of Raju.

Then x + 24 is the age of Rohit, Raju's father.

After two years age of Rohit will be x + 24 + 2.

After two years age, Rohit's age will be twice of Raju's age.

Thus, Thus, the present age of Raju is 22 years and the age of Rohit is 22 + 24 = 46 years.

age of raju= x                                                                                                                                                                        age of rohit=( x+24)

after two years Rohit will twice the age of Raju.so                                                                                                         age of raju= x + 2                                                                                                                                                                 age of rohit= (x + 24) + 2 = twice rajus age=2x

after 2 years ........

age of raju= x

age of rohit=( x+24)

after two years Rohit will twice the age of Raju.so

age of raju= x + 2

age of rohit= (x + 24) + 2 = twice rajus age= 2x

=  (x + 24) + 2 = 2(x + 2)

= x + 26 = 2x + 4

= 26 - 4 = 2x - x

= 22 = x

rajus age = x = 22

rohits age = x + 24 = 22 + 24 =46

after 2 years ........

rajus age = x + 2 =22+2 =24

rohits age = (x + 24)+2 = 46+2 =48

rohits age = twice rajus age 48 = 2 x 24 48 = 48

rajus present age = 24 rohits present age = 48

Let Raju's age be x

Therefore, Rohit's age is x +24

After 2 ears Rohit's age will be x+24+2 = x+26

After 2 years, Raju's age will be 2(x+2)

Therefore 2(x+2) = x + 26

2x + 4 = x +26

2x -x = 26 -4

x = 22

This means that Raju's age is 22 years

Therefore, Rohits age is x + 24 = 22 + 24 = 46 years

Ans: Raju is 22 years and Rohit is 46 years
