# After 25 years, Rama will be 5 times as old as he is now. Find his present age

**Solution:**

Let the present age of Rama be x years

Then after 25 years, the age of Rama be (x + 25) years

The required equation is:

5x = (x + 25)

5x - x = 25

4x = 25

x = 25/4

x = 6(1/4)

Thus, the present age of Rama is 6(1/4) years.

**✦ Try This:** After 15 years, Raman will be 3 times as old as he is now. Find his present age.

Let the present age of Raman be x years

Then after 15 years, the age of Raman be (x + 15) years

A/Q

3x = (x + 15)

3x - x = 15

2x = 15

x = 15/2

x = 7(1/2)

Thus, the present age of Raman is 7(1/2) years.
