**Steve**, Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 2:54amif ramesh=x, rahim = 7/5 x

x+1 = 2(7/5 x - 1)

5x+5 = 14x - 10

9x = 15

x=5/3

so, ramesh is 5/3, rahim is 7/3

if ramesh were 5/3+1 = 8/3, and rahim were 7/3-1 = 4/3, ramesh would be twices as old as rahim.

I think a non-fractional age would have been better. Bogus problem.

**Reiny**, Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 8:46amramesh's present age --- 5x

rahim's present age ----- 7x

under the "if" situation:

5x+1 = 2(7x-1)

5x+1 = 14x - 2

x = 1/3

Agree with Steve, silly question
