# Problems on Ages - Aptitude Questions and Answers Part 2

 6. Talking about his neighbours, Ram says: "A is 5 times as old as B but his age is 7 of C's age. 18
But if you put their ages together, the sum works out to 132 years".
How much younger is B to C?

a. 27 years
b. 56 years
c. 83 years
d. Cannot be determined

Explanation:

A's age  = 5 times B's = 5B years

 Also, A's age = 7 of C's age 18

 ∴ C's age = 18 of A's age = 18 x 5B = 90B years 7 7 7

A's age + B's age + C's age = 132 -------------- Given

 ∴ 5B + B + 90B = 132 years 7

∴ 35B + 7B + 90B = 132 x 7 --------------- Multiply by 7 on both sides

∴ B = 7 years

 C's age = 90B = 90 years 7

B is (90 - 7 = 83) years younger than C

7. The average age of 4 children of a cricket class is 36 years. The youngest child amongst them is 6 years old. Find the average age of the group of 4 children when the youngest child was born?

a. 32 years
b. 36 years
c. 38 years
d. 40 years

Explanation:

Present average age of the group = 36 years
Sum of present ages of all 4 children in the group = 36 x 4 = 144 years.
The youngest child is 6 years old, which means, the youngest was born 6 years ago.

So now, 6 years ago,
Sum of ages of all 4 children = 144 - (6 x 4) = 144 - 24 = 120 years
Since youngest one was just born, his age was 0.
So, now we should not include the youngest child in the group
So now, total number of children = 4-1=3

 Average age of group at time birth of the youngest child = Sum of ages of children Number of children

 ∴ Average age of group at time birth of the youngest child = 120 = 40 years 3

8. The average age of a family of 4 member, 4 years back was 19 years. Now, there's a new child added to the family and this has kept the average age of the family same. How old is the child recently added to the family?

a. 1 year
b. 2 years
c. 3 years
d. 4 years

Explanation:

4 years back,
Average age of family = 19 years
Sum or Total of all ages of all 4 family members = 19 x 4 = 76 years

In present day, that means after 4 years,
Sum or Total of present ages of these 4 family members = 76 + (4 x 4) = 92 years.

Let the child's present age be K years.
Now family is of 5 members (because a child has been added some years back)

 Present average age of family = Sum of present ages of 4 members + Child's present age 5

Average remains same as it was 4 years back

 ∴ 19 = 92+K 5

∴ K = 3 years = This is the present age of the child.
