Answer :

Let the present ages of Hari=5x and Harry=7x years.

After 4 years Hari’s age will be (5x + 4) years and Harry’s age will be (7x + 4) years.

As per the conditions given, we have

\(\frac { 5x+4 }{ 7x+4 } =\frac { 3 }{ 4 }\)

\(\Rightarrow 4(5x + 4) = 3(7x + 4)\quad\) [Cross-multiplication]

\(\Rightarrow 20x + 16 = 21x + 12\quad \) [Solving the bracket]

\(\Rightarrow 20x – 21x = 12 – 16 \quad \)[Transposing 21x to LHS and 16 to RHS]

\(\Rightarrow -x = -4\)

\(\Rightarrow x = 4\)

Hence, the present ages of Hari and Harry are 5 × 4 = 20years and 7 × 4 = 28years respectively.

- 1. \(\frac { 8x-3 }{ 3x } =2\)
- 2. \(\frac { 9x }{ 7-6x } = 15\)
- 3.\(\frac { z }{ z+15 } =\frac { 4 }{ 9 }\)
- 4. \(\frac { 3y+4 }{ 2-6y } =\frac { -2 }{ 5 }\)
- 5. \(\frac { 7y+4 }{ y+2 } =\frac { -4 }{ 3 }\)
- 7.The denominator of a rational number is greater than its numerator by 8. If the numerator is increased by 17 and the denominator is decreased by 1, the number obtained is \frac { 3 }{ 2 }. Find the rational number.
