arithmetic - the ratio between the present ages of a and b is 3 5 respectively the ratio between as age 2 years ago and bs age 8 years hence is 1 2 what is the ratio between as age 2 years hence and bs age 8 years age - skillgun

Solution: Let the present ages of A and B be 3x and 5x years respectively.
Then, 3x-2 1
------- = ----
5x+8 2
x= 12.
Required ratio = (3x+2) : (5x -8) = 19 : 26
