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.
