Q2)The difference between the age is of Meera and Ritu is 30 years.After 220 years Meera's age will be twice of Ritu's age.Find their present values.

to #1: Code:

| age today age in 12 years
-------------------------------------------
daughter | x | x+12
mother | 3x | 3x+12
-------------------------------------------

The last column yields an equation in x:

to #2: I assume thast there is a typo. If you take 22 instaed of 220 then you'll get a plausible result:

Let m, r denote to ages of Meera and Ritu respectively. Then you can set up the following system of equations:

Solve for m and r. (For your confirmation only: r = 8, m = 38)
