Expert Answer

According to the conditions, we get

y + 5 = 3(x + 5)

→ 3x - y = -10 .... (1)

y - 5 = 7(x - 5)

7x - y = 30 .... (2)

Subtracting (1) from (2), we get

4x = 40 → x = 10

Substitute the value of x in (1), we get

y = 3(10) + 10 = 40

Therefore, the present age of Jacob is 40 years and the present age of his Son is 10 years.
