Present ages of Shibu and Sohail are in the ratio of 4:5. Eight years from now the ratio of their ages will be 5:6. Find the difference in their ages?


Let the present ages of Shibu and Sohail be 4x and 5x

It is given that,

$$\ \frac{\ 4x\ +\ 8}{5x\ +\ 8}=\frac{5}{6}$$

24x + 48 = 25x + 40

x = 8

Age difference = x = 8
