arithmetic - the sum of the present ages of gautham and his father murali is 60 years six years ago fathers age was five times the age of the son after 6 years what will be sons age - skillgun

Let the present age of the son = x, then
Present age of the father = 60-x
Six years ago father's age was 5 times the age of the son
=> (60-x)-6 = 5(x-6)
=> 84 = 6x
=> x = 84/6 = 14
Son's age after 6 years = x + 6 = 14 + 6 = 20
