A said to B "I am 4 times as old as you were when I was one third of what your age will be 2 years from now".if the sum of their ages is 46 .find A's age

Sent from my Nexus 5 using

GMAT Club Forum mobile appa: A's age, b: B's age

two years later B's age: b+2

one third what your age will be 2 years later: 1/3 (b+2)

difference: a - 1/3(b+2)

B's age when A was one third of what your age will be 2 years laer: b - ( a - 1/3(b+2) )

Thus we have a = 4 ( b - ( a - 1/3(b+2) ) )

a = 4b - 4a + 4/3 ( b + 2 )

15*a = 16*b + 9

a = 24, b = 22
