# The ratio of the ages of Anil and his son at present is 7:3.

The ratio of the ages of Anil and his son at present is 7:3. Six years hence, the ratio of the ages of the Anil's wife and the son will be 2:1. Find the ratio of the present ages of Anil and his wife?

## Answer/Solution

Cannot be determined

### Steps/Work

Answer: Option D

Let the present ages of anil and his son be 7x and 3x years respectively.

Let the present age of the son's mother be m years.

(m + 6)/(3x + 6) = 2/1

m = 6x + 6

Ratio of the present ages of anil and his son's mother = 7x/(6x + 6).

This cannot be found uniquely.
