### Question 1

My present age is 432 times the reciprocal of my age 6 years back. What is my present age?

**A**

24 years.

**B**

25 years.

**C**

23 years.

**D**

26 years.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the present age be x. Then $x = 432/{x - 6}$. At this stage a better option is that you try putting the given answers into this expression one by one. The other option is to simplify this expression into a quadratic equation $x × (x - 6)$ = 432. This can now be solved to give x = 24 years.

### Question 2

The ages of three friends are in the ratio 11:5:13. What is the age of the youngest friend if the sum of their ages is 116 years?

### Question 3

P is 13 years older than Q, and Q's age is 6 times the age of R. If the sum of their ages today is 117, then what is the age of Q?

### Question 4

The sum of reciprocals of my ages 6 years back and 6 years later is ${16/247}$. What is my present age?

**A**

32 years.

**B**

33 years.

**C**

31 years.

**D**

34 years.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the present age be x. Then $1/{x + 6} + 1/{x - 6}$ = ${16/247}$. At this stage a better option is that you try putting the given answers into this expression one by one. The other option is to simplify this expression into a quadratic equation ${2x}/{x^2 - 36}$ = ${16/247}$. This can now be solved to give x = 32 years.

### Question 5

P is 13 years older than Q, and Q's age is 7 times the age of R. If the sum of their ages today is 88, then what is the age of Q?
