## let father’s age be X

SONS AGE BE Y

X/Y=1/5

BY CROSS MULTIPLICATION

5X=Y

SUM OF AGES =48

X+Y =48

PUT VALUE OF Y

Step-by-step explanation:

X =8

Y =40

## HOPE IT HELPS PLEASE MARK AS BRAINLIEST

I THINK YOUR QUESTION IS WRONG BECAUSE BECAUSE FATHER’S AGE IS LESS THAN THE SUN AGE PLEASE CHECK IF THE FRACTION IS 5 BY 1 AUR 1 BY 5

2. Correct Question:- The sum of the age of father and the son is 48 year . the quotient obtained by dividing the age of son by the age of father is 1/ 5 .find their ages.

Solution:- Let the age of father = x years

Age of son = (48-x) years

According to Question,

5×(48-x) = x

240-5x=x

240=x+5x

240=6x

x=

Now,age of father = x = 40 years

Age of son = (48-x) years

= 48-40 years

= 8 years
