arithmetic - present ages of santosh and arjun are in the ratio of 5 4 respectively three years hence the ratio of their ages will become 11 9 respectively what is arjuns present age in years - skillgun

Let the present ages of Santosh and Arjun be 5x years and 4x years respectively
Then, (5x + 3)/(4x + 3) = 11/9
9 (5x + 3) = 11 (4x + 3)
x = 6
Arjun's present age = 4x = 24 years.
