# Fifteen years from now Ravi’s age will be four times his present age. What is Ravi’s present age?

**Solution:**

Let's form a linear equation for the given problem statement.

Let the present age of Ravi be x years.

According to the question, 15 years from now, Ravi’s age will be 4 times his present age

x + 15 = 4x

x - 4x = -15

-3x = -15

x = -15/(-3)

x = 5

Thus, Ravi’s present age is 5 years.
