A man is four times as old as his son. The difference between their ages is 36 years Find the sum of their ages
Correct Answer: Option C
Let the sons age be x. The father is 4x
∴ 4x – x = 36; 3x = 36; x = 12
The son is 12 years and the father is 12 x 4 = 48.
The sum of their ages (12 + 48) years = 60years
