A father said to his son, "I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth". If the father's age is 38 years now,what was the son's age five years back?

Current age of father - 38 years

At the time of his boy's birth, father age - 19 years
If, current age of boy - 19 years

19 + 19 = Current age of father i.e 38 years.

Age of boy five years back = 19 - 5 ==> 14
So, son's age five years back will be == 14 Years

Ans :- 14 years
