Aarav is two years older than Bhargav who is twice as old as Chetan. If the total of the ages of Aarav, Bhargav and Chetan be 27, the how old is Bhargav? posted Feb 26, 2016

Aarav = Bhargav + 2
Bhargav = 2 × chetan

Aarav + Bhargav + Chetan = 27
(Bhargav + 2) + Bhargav + ( Bharagav/2) = 27
Bhargav = 10 answer Feb 26, 2016

Let's chetan's age=x
Then Bhargav's age=2x
& Aren't age=2x+2
Now,
x+2x+(2x+2)=27
5x+2=27
x=5
Bhargav's age=2x=2*5=10
Ans:Bhargav's age is 10 yrs. answer Feb 26, 2016

Bhargav age is 10 years.

In detail:

1. Assume chetan age is x.
2. Then bhargav age will be 2x.
3. Aarav age will be 2x +2

Total age is 27. Hence 5x+2=27. There fore x=5

Bhargav age will be 5*2 = 10 years. answer Apr 15, 2016
