Expert Answer:

Let x and y be the ages of a woman and her son respectively.
The difference between age of a woman and her son is 19 years.
x - y = 19 ...(i)
sum of year age is 37 years.
x + y = 37 ...(ii)
 
Adding (i) and (ii)
2x = 56
x = 28 years
Put in (i) we get 
28 - y = 19
y = 9
Hence, the age of son and women are 28 and 9 years respectively.
