# Today Ramu's age is $\frac{1}{2}$ times of his father's age Ramu's mother is 25 years older than Ramu. Difference between the age of his parents is 5 years. How old is everyone in his family?

**Given:** Ramu's age is $\frac{1}{2}$ times of his father's age. Ramu's mother is 25 years older than Ramu. Difference between the age of his parents is 5 years.

**To find:** Here we have to find the present age of Ramu's family.

**Solution:**

Let age of Ramu = a

__Given that, Ramu's age is $\frac{1}{2}$ times of his father's age__:

$\frac{1}{2}$(Age of Ramu's father) = Age of Ramu

Age of Ramu's father = 2(Age of Ramu)

Age of Ramu's father = 2a

__Also, Ramu's mother is 25 years older than Ramu__:

Age of Ramu's mother = Age of Ramu $+$ 25

Age of Ramu's mother = a $+$ 25

__Now, difference between the age of his parents is 5 years__:

Age of Ramu's father $-$ Age of Ramu's mother = 5

2a $-$ (a $+$ 25) = 5

2a $-$ a $-$ 25 = 5

a = 5 $+$ 25

**a = 30**

**
**

**
**

Therefore,

Age of Ramu = a = **30 years**

Age of Ramu's father = 2a = **60 years**

Age of Ramu's mother = a $+$ 25 = **55 years**
