Present age of 'A' is 4 years less than that of 'B'. Age of 'C', 4 years hence from now will be 60% more than the age of 'B', 4 years ago from now. Find the present average age of 'A' and 'B' together if the sum of present age of 'A' and 'C' is 48 years.

Let present age of A = x

If A is 4 years less than that of B , then age of B = x+4

60% more of B's age 4 year before = 1.6 x

If Age of C after 4 years is 60% more of B's age 4 year before, then present age of C = ( 1.6 x - 4 )

Sum of present age of A and C = x + ( 1.6x -4 ) = 48  .....................(1)

From above expression, we get x = 20

Age of A = 20  year; Age of B = 24 year;

Average age of A and B = 22 year ;
