the ages of sonal and manoj are in the ratio 7:5. after 10 years, the ratio of teir ages will be 9:7. find their present ages ?
Ratio of present ages of Sonal and Manoj = 7:5
Let us consider the ages of Sonal and Manoj to be 7x yrs. and 5x yrs. respectively.
After 10 years, ratio of their ages = 9:7
A/q, 7x+10/5x+10 = 9/7
or 9 (5x+10) = 7 (7x+10)
or 45x + 90 = 49x + 70
or 49x - 45x = 90 - 70
or 4x = 20
or x = 20/4 = 5 .
Therefore, present age of Sonal = 7x yrs. = 7 x 5 yrs. = 35 yrs.
present age of Manoj = 5x yrs. = 5 x 5 yrs. = 25 yrs.
