  1. son's age : (x+5) in 5 years.
    Parent's age: 2(x+5) in 5 years.

    50 < ((x+5) + 2(x+5))< 100,
    50 < (x+5 + 2x+10) < 100,
    50 < 3x+15 < 100,
    50-15 < 3x < 100-15,
    35 < 3x < 85,
    35/3 < x < 85/3.
    11 2/3 < X < 28 1/3,
    16 2/3 < x+5 < 33 1/3,

    (x+5) = 20 years = The son's age.

    2(x+5) = 40 years = The parent's age.
