The age of the father is twice the sum of the ages of his two children.After,20 years , his age will be equal to the sum of the ages of his children.Find the age of the father

Let the age of father be x years and the sum of ages of two children be y years.

According to the question

Then after 20 years the age of father will be (x + 20) years and the sum of ages of two children will by (y + 2 × 20) = (y + 40) years

also x + 20 = y + 40  ...  (2)

putting the value of y from (1) in (2) we get

Hence the age of the father is 40 years.
