Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 2

### The age of Rohit is 25% more than the age of Sachin. If the sum of their ages is 45 years, what is the difference between their ages?

Detailed Solution for Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 2

To find the difference between Rohit and Sachin's ages:

- Let's say Sachin's age is x years.
- Rohit's age is 25% more, which is 1.25x.
- Given, their total age is 45 years: x + 1.25x = 45.
- 2.25x = 45
- x = 20
there difference 1.25x - x = 0.25x = 0.25 x 20 = 5

Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 3

### The ages of A, B and C are ‘X’ years,  ‘X + 50’ years and ‘X – 20’ years respectively, if the average age of all three is 40 years, what is the value of X?

Detailed Solution for Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 3

3X + 30 = 120

Hence, Option C is correct.

Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 4

If the age of Mohit is 250% more than the age of Jeenat and the sum of their ages is 54 years, what is the age of Jeenat?

Detailed Solution for Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 4

Let the age of Jeenat be xxx years.

Since Mohit's age is 250% more than Jeenat's, Mohit's age will be:

x+2.5x=3.5x

The sum of their ages is 54 years, so:

x+3.5x=54

Simplifying:

4.5x=54

Thus, Jeenat's age is 12 years.

The correct answer is:

3. 12 years.

Test: Problems on Ages - 2 - Question 5

The average age of A, B, C and D is 20 years and their ages are in Arithmetic progression. If the youngest among them is 15 years old, what is the age of the oldest one?

Since their ages are in Arithmetic progression, the average age of the youngest and oldest must be 20 years.
15 + The age of the oldest one = 20 × 2
The age of the oldest one = 40 – 15 = 25 years
Hence, Option D is correct.
