Expert Answer:

Q.1: After 12 years Kanwar shall be 3 times as old as he was 4 years ago. find his present age?

Solution:

Let the present age of Kanwar be x years.

ACcording to the condition in the question, we get

x + 12 = 3(x - 4)

→ x + 12 = 3x - 12

→ 2x = 24

→ x = 12

Therefore the present age of Kanwar is 12 years.
