Brother: Girl: Father:: 1: 2: 4

=> x+2x+4x = 7x

Brother and father => 5x

After 22 years

Brother: Father:: 1: 2 = > 3(x+22)

Now we can continue by knowing

5x - 3(x+22) = -44 [ because between the 2 ratios the age difference is 22x2 for 2 people ]

5x - 3x -66 = -44

2x = 22

x = 11 ===> Brothers age 22 years earlier, so now ===> 11 + 22 = **33.**

2x = 22 ===> Sisters age 22 years earlier, so now ===> 22 + 22 = **44.**

4x = 44 ===> Fathers age 22 years earlier, so now ===> 44 + 22 = **66.**

Brothers age ===> 11 .

Sisters age ===> 22

Fathers age ===> 44

in 22 years:

Brothers age ===> 11 .+22=33

Sisters age ===> 22 +22=44

Fathers age ===> 44 +22=66
