Leela got married 6 years ago. Today her age is 1¼ times her age at the time of her marriage. Her son’s age is 1/10 times her age. What is the present age of her son?

  1. 1 year
  2. 2 years
  3. 3 years
  4. 4 years

Answer

Let the present age of Leela's son be x.

Son’s age is 1/10 times Leela's age.

Leela's present age = 10x

Leela's age is 1¼ times her age 6 years ago.

10x = 5/4(10x - 6)

8x = 10x - 6

2x = 6

x = 3

The correct option is C.
