### What is age problems in arithmetic aptitude?

Age problems are nothing but algebra word problems that deal with ages of people.

For example we can say, age a person in the present compared with his past or future.

### What the easy ways to solve age problems?

1) t years ago the age of A was n1 times the age of B, and at present A’s age is n2 times that of B, then;

A’s present age = (n1 – 1) / (n1 – n2)  * n2 x t years

And, B’s present age =  (n1 – 1)/(n1 – n2) * t years

2) The present age of A is n1 times the present age of B. After t years, age of A becomes n2 times the age of B, then;

A’s present age = (n2 – 1)/(n1 – n2) * n2 x t years

And, B’s present age = (n2 – 1) / (n1 – n2) * t years

3) t1 years ago, the age of A was X times the age of B and after t2 years age of A becomes Y times the age of B, then;

A’s present age = (x (t1 – t2)(y – 1)) / (x-y) + t1 years

And B’s present age = t2 (y – 1)+ t1(x – 1) / x – y years

4) The given sum of present ages of P and Q is X years, t years ago, the age of P was Y times the age of Q, then;

Present age of P = (xy – t (y – 1)) / (y + 1) Years

And, the present age of Q = (x + t (y – 1)) / (y + 1)

5) The given sum of present ages of P and Q is X years, t years after, the age of P becomes Q times the age of Q, then;

P’s present age = (xy + t (y – 1)) / (y + 1)  Years

And Q’s present age= x – t (y – 1) / y + 1 Years

6) The ratio of the present age of A and B is p: q and after t years, it becomes r: s, then;

A’s present age = pt (r – s) / ps – qr Years

And, B’s present age = qt (r – s) / ps – qr Years

Yes this is the entire concept of problems on age. This is one of the easiest topics. But will make you to think a lot.

So before answering any questions from this section think well.
