Age Problem Solved :

A is 5 years elder than B who is now 4 times as old as C. C is now 7 years old. What was A’s age when C was born?

a) 16 b) 26 c) 36 d) 20

Answer : b) 26

Solution :

Let age of A be X.

Then, age of B = X-5

C's age = 7

B's Age = 4 times as C

i.e., X - 5 = 4 x 7

X = 33.

Hence, A's age when C was born = 33 - 7 = 26.
