Step-by-step explanation:Let current age of father be y

Therefore age after 2 years = y+2

Let age of son be x

By given condition,

y+2=3x+8

therefore,

2-8=3x-y

3x-y= -6

let us assume x= -3,

3x-y= -6

3(-3)-y= -6

-9-y= -6

-y= -6+9

-y=3

y= -3

let us assume x=3

3x-y = -6

3(3)-y= -6

9-y = -6

-y = -6-9

-y = -15

y=15

let us assume x= 1

3x-y = -6

3(1)-y= -6

3-y= -6

-y = -6-3

-y = -9

y=9

Ans. Solutions for given equation are (x,y) = (-3,-3), (3,15) & (1,9)
