let the present age of Sahil be x years and his mother’s age be 3x years..

There ages after 5 years

Sahil=x+5 years

Sahil’s mother=3x+5 years

According to question..

(x+5)+(3x+5)=66.

4x+10=66.

4x=56

x=14

Hence Sahil is 14 years old at present..

and

Her mother is (3x) 42 years old at present..

The present age of Sahil’s mother is three times the present age of Sahil. After 5 years their ages will add to 66 years. Find their present ages.

Assume present age of sahil be x

Present age of his mother will be 3x

after 5 years

sahil age=x+5

his mothers age =3x+5.

According to question

(x+5)+(3x+5)=66

4x+10=66

4x=56

x=14

sahil present age=14 years

his mother present age= 42 years.
