# What will be the Present Age of the Husband? If

The average age of husband, wife and their child 3 years ago was 27 years and that of wife and the child 5 years ago was 20 years. The present age of the husband is:

- 35 years
- 40 years
- 50 years
- 38 years

**Answer: (2) 40 years**

**Explanation:-**

The total present ages of husband, wife and child = 27 x 3 + 3 x 3

= 81 + 9 = 90 years.

The total age of wife and child = 20 x 2 + 5 x 2

= 40 + 10 = 50 years.

Then, the husband’s present age = 90 – 50

= 40 years.

Hence, the present age of husband is 40 years.
