arithmetic - four years ago venkats age was three times the age of his son the total of the ages of venkat and his son after four years will be 64 years what is the venkats age at present - skillgun

Let the ages of Venkat and son 4 years ago be 3x and x years respectively.
Then, [(3x + 4) + 4] + [(x + 4) + 4] = 64 ? 4x = 48 ? x =12.
Venkat’s present age = 3x + 4= 40 years.
