Expert Answer:

Let Ram's age be x years and her daughter's age be y years.
 
According to the question:
 
Ram's age is 10 less from three times the age of her daughter.
 
If daughter's age = y
Three times her age = 3y
and Ram's age is 10 less from 3y.
 
Therefore,
x = 3(y) - 10
 
Put y = 20
 
x = 3(20)- 10
   = 60 - 10
   = 50 years
 
Hence, Ram's age = 50 yrs.
