Right now, the mum is 21 years older than the child.In 6 years, the mum will be 5 times as old as the child.

Question :

Where’s the father right now?

Solution:

The mum is 21 years older than the child.

M = C + 21

in 6 years from now the mum will be 5 times as old as the child.

M + 6 = (C + 6) x 5

Hence,

C + 21 + 6 = (C + 6) x 5

C + 27 = 5C + 30

-3 = 4C

C = -3/4

The child is -3/4 years old, it’ll be born in 9 months.

So right now, the father is on top of the mother
