  1. Answer:

    Let the present ages of father and son be x years and y years respectively. According to the first condition, x + 2y = 70 …(i) According to the second condition, 2x + y = 95 …(ii) Multiplying equation (i) by 2, we get 2x + 4y = 140 …(iii) Subtracting equation (ii) from (iii), we get ∴ y = 453453 = 15 Substituting y = 15 in equation (i), we get x + 2(15) = 70 ∴ x + 30 = 70 ∴ x = 70 – 30 ∴ x = 40 ∴ The present ages of father and son are 40 years and 15 years respectively.Read more on Sarthaks.com – https://www.sarthaks.com/842205/the-sum-fathers-age-and-twice-the-age-his-double-the-age-the-father-and-add-the-age-his-son-the
