# 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

** SOLVE PROBLEMS BASED ON AGES-LEARN SERIES**

** SOLVE PROBLEMS BASED ON AGES-PART-2: LEARN SERIES**

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?**

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?**

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?**

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**

### PRACTICE THIS SUM:

** 1)The Ratio of the ages of two friends Vinu & Vishal is 7:4.If the difference between the present age of Vinu & Vishal 2 years hence is 4,then what is the sum of the present ages of Vinu & Vishal?**

#### 2)The difference of present ages of Akil & Anish is 10 years.If 4 years back their ages were in the ratio of 7:5.Find the sum of their present ages?

## #.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?**

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**

### PRACTICE THIS SUM:

**1)The Age of Man is 140% of what it was 20 years ago,but 90 % of what it will be after 10 years.What is his present age?**

**2)The Age of a girl is 120% of what it was 6 years ago,but 60% of what it will be after 10 years.What is his present age?**
