# The Ratio of Age of Ram and his Mother is 3:11:

The ratio of age of Ram and his mother is 3:11. The difference of their ages is 24 years will be the ratio of their ages after 3 years ?

- 1:3
- 3:2
- 1:4
- 5:4

**Answer: (1) 1: 3**

**Explanation:-
**The ratio of age of Ram and his mother = 3: 11

Let the age of Ram and his mother = 3 X and 11 X

The difference of their ages is 24 years,

Then, 11 X – 3 X = 24

8 X = 24

X = 24/8

X = 3

Then, the age of Ram = 3 X = 3 x 3 = 9 years and his mother = 11 X = 11 x 3 = 33 years

The age of Ram after three years = 9 + 3 = 12 years

The age of his mother after three mother = 33 + 3 = 36 years

Then, the ratio of their ages after 3 years = 12: 36

= 1: 3

Hence, the answer is (1) 1: 3.
