QA – Placement Quizzes | Age | Question 1

After 15 years, Paul’s age will be 5 times his age 5 years back. Find out his present age.
(A) 10 years
(B) 14 years
(C) 12 years
(D) 11 years


Answer: (A)

Explanation: Let his present age be x years.
Paul’s age after 15 years = (x+15) years.
Paul’s age 5 years back = (x-5) years.
Hence, x+15 = 5(x-5)
⇒ x+15 = 5x-25
⇒ 4x = 40
⇒ x = 10.
