After 15 years Mohan's age will be four times his present age. Find the present age.


Given :

15 years later Mohan's age is four times the present age.

To do :

We have to find the present age of Mohan.

Solution :

Let the present age of Mohan be x years.

This implies,

Age of Mohan after 15 years $=$ 4x

$x+15 = 4x$

$4x-x=15$

$3x=15$

$x=\frac{15}{3}$

$x=5$

The present age of Mohan is 5 years.
