Mr Dharumaraj shall you please explain ur answer?

let c year is x
then B is twice of C then, B=2x
Then A is 2 years older then B, therefore now B=2x,Then A=2+B, that is A=2+2x
Therefore sum up all the value:[(2+2x)for A,2x for B,x for C]
now B is directly linked with C rather then A
2*5=10 that'z it my frnd

B is twice as old as C means C=2B right?

Who is twice as old as c means?

We can also solve as
A's age be x yrs. then B's age is x-2 and C's age is(x-2)/2.

Your thought is right but answer will be wrong..just watch
x+x-2+(x-2)/2 = 27
2x+2x-4+x-2 = 27*2= 54
5x-6 = 54
which is a wrong ans
always we have to equal the x to the smallest number as per the problem....

I got ur explantion but in solving y cannt we take
2(2x)+2x+x=27 bcoz when i read this question i did in this way only but when after
I saw this answer it was different.
SO PLZ TELL ME SOME TIPS HOW 2 IDENTIFY THIS IS BELONGS 2 THIS METHODS

so (2+B) + B + B/2 = 27
2B + B/2 = 25
5B/2 = 25

Read the ques properly.
Assume C=X. it is given that A IS 2 YEARS OLDER THAN B. It means that we should ADD the 2 years to B's age, so A=B+2.
Then for C it is given that it was TWICE AS OLD AS C. so it is understood tat it should be MULTIPLIED WITH THE C'S AGE. so B=2X.
Finally, sub B=2X in A's equation(A=B+2). therefore A=2X+2
Now A+B+C=27, therefore sub the values of A,B,C in the equation

The population of town was 24000. If males increases by 6% and females by9%, it becomes 25620. Number of males and females are?- Please any one explain me...
(Mon, Mar 5, 2012 04:52:29 PM)
by solving this 2 u get before increasing values..........
after increasing total number of females are (109/100)*6000=6540
after increasing total number of males are (106/100)*18000=19080
total is 25620
Hence proved(any doubts?)

How u get x=18000 and y=6000?
How it come?

A is 2 years old than B ===> A= B+2
B is Twice as old than c ===> B=2C ==> C=B/2
A+B+C = 27
So we can write as below
A+B+C = 27
B+2+B+B/2 = 27
Put (3),(2) in (1)
Hope it'll help you

Let the age of c is x
Given that the age of b is twice of c age so,
b is age is 2x
a is two years grater than b is age, so,
a is 2x+x
From the Question
The sum of a,b,c is 27
So,the age of b is 2x,
The value of x is 5
So the age of bis 10.

Why can't we take B=x? if answer is same when we assume any one out of A B C =x, answer will be wrong if we assume B=x
