# Q.12 Fifteen years from now Ravi’s age will be four times his present age. What is Ravi’s present age?

D Divya Prakash Singh

Let us assume Ravi's present age to be x years.

According to the question,

x + 15 = 4x

Transposing x to the RHS

15 = 3x

Now dividing both sides by 3, we get

$x = \frac{15}{3} = 5$

Hence Ravi's current age is 5 years.
