# PRACTICE DIFFICULT PROBLEMS ON AGES-QUESTIONS ASKED IN COMPETITIVE EXAMS

Hi Bankersdaily Aspirants,

Feeling good to see you all again,I know all were curiously preparing for IBPS RRB Exam which is going to be held with in 10 days.As of now we should practice different & difficult Question to increase our Calculation Speed & Accuracy.Aspirants today I am  here to discuss some of the patterns in ages which is asked in Competitive Exams.

INTRODUCTION:

Friends,Problems on ages is like Icing on the cake any one can solve the problem,because the question may not be tricky and they cannot set the difficulty level after a certain extent in this topic,So friends let us discuss some of the Question Pattern asked in Previous Exams.Before that let us have a glance on the basic’s of Ages

PROBLEMS TO BE DISCUSSED IN THE FOLLOWING TYPE

1)BASED ON RATIO’S

2)BASED ON PERCENTAGE

## #.1 TYPE 1:

### BASED ON RATIO’S:

#### 1)The Ratio’s of Akash & Vinesh age is 9:7.If the difference between the present age of Akash & the age of Vinesh 5 years hence is 3.Then find the sum of their Present Ages?

EXPLANATION

The Age of Akash & Vinesh=9x & 7x

Given that the difference between the age of Akash & Age of Vinesh after 5 years is 3.

=9x-(7x+5)=3

=9x-7x-5=3

=2x=8

x=4

Therefore the sum of their age is 64.

#### 2)The ratio of Aathi & Ajay is 3:5 and sum of their age is 80 years & ratio of their ages after 10 years will be?

EXPLANATION

The ratio of Aathi & Ajay=3x & 5x

Sum of their age=3x+5x=8x=80

x=10 years

Ratio of their age after  10 years,

Aathi=30+10=40 Years

Ajay=50+10=60 Years

=40:60

=2:3

3)The difference between the Present age of Vasundhara & Varun is 12 years.If 6 years back their ages are in the ratio 3:2,how old are Vasundhara & Varun?

EXPLANATION

Given that,difference between their ages=12 years

6 Years Back:

Their ages is,

=(Vasundhara -6)/(Varun -6)=3/2

=2(Vasundhara – 6)=3(Varun- 6)

=2Vasundhara-12=3Varun-18

=2Vasundhara-3Varun=-18+12

=2Vasundhara-3Varun=-6

Given their Difference is 12

Vasundhara-Varun=12

Therefore

Age of Vasundhara=42 years

Age of Varun=30 years

22 years

68 years

## #.2.TYPE 2:

### BASED ON PERCENTAGE:

#### 1)A women’s age is 120% of what it was 15 years ago,but  75 % of what it will be after 15 years.What is her present age?

EXPLANATION

Let us Consider the present age be x years.Then,

15 years ago:

(x-15)

Given that the age of the women is 120% of what it was 15 years ago.

Therefore Present age

120% of (x-15)

After 15 years:

Women;s Age will be (x+15)

Given that the age of the women is 75% of what it was after 15 years.

75% of (x+15)

To Find the Present age let us equate the two equation,

120% of (x-15)=75% of (x+15)

120/100 (x-15)=75/100 (x+15)

6/5(x-15)=3/4(x+15)

6*4*(x-15)=3*5*(x+15)

24(x-15)=15(x+15)

24x-360=15x+225

9x=585

x=65

74 years
