Answer:
Let father's and son's age, 10 years ago, be f and s respectively.
From the given information,
f = 2s + 35              ... (i)
Present age of father = f + 10
Present age of son = s + 10
Let after x number of years, father be twice his son's age. Then, we have:
f + 10 + x = 2(s + 10 + x)
On simplifying, we get, x = f - 2s - 10
Using (i), we get,
x = 35 - 10 = 25
Thus, after 25 years father will be twice his son's age.
