fifteen years from now ravi's age will be four times his present age . what is his present age?

Let Ravi's present age be X

After 15 years his age will be X + 15

At the same time it will be 4 times his present age i.e 4X

4X = X+15

4X - X = 15

3X = 15

X = 5

Verification

Ravi's present age = 5

After 15 years his age will be = 5 + 15 = 20

20 is 4 times of 5

let Ravi's present age be x
After 15 years
   Ravi's age = x+15
 Acc. to question
After 15 years his age will be 4 times his present age = 4x
​      4x = x+15
4x - x = 15
  3x = 15
x = 15/3 = 5 
hence, Ravi's present age is 5 years
 after 15 years= 5 + 15=20 years
  4 times 5 = 4*5 = 20 years 
       L.H.S=R.H.S
