Let age of Boy and Girl be x and y respectively.

When the boy is 4 years old then Girl y=2x=2x4=8;
After 4 years the girl will be 8+4=12 Years.

8 years

if the age of the boy is 2, the girl age is twice of the boy, so it is 4
when the boy age is (2+4 = 6), then the girl age is (4+4= 8) ... there are many more comparison to come up

let X=age of the girl
and 2x=age of the boy when the girl is x years old
2x=4 current age of the boy
then, x=4/2, x=2 years old current age of the girl
after 4 years, the age of the girl will be 2+4=6

let the age of girl be x
the age of boy be y
as per given x=2y
y=4
then x=2x4
x=8
after 4years the girl age is x=8+4

The answer is 5. Lets say the boy is 1yr old and at that time girls is 2yrs old. Eventually when the boy is 4, the girl would be 5.

Keep the answer as general as possible.
when boy is 4, girl is 8; after 4 years the girl is 8 + 4 + x= 12 + x (where x is any number of years after the four years we already counted)

The first statement is just a reference to determine the girls age is 4 years older than the boys when he was 4. We dont know what the bits age was 4 years ago. The boy could easily be 4 or older, making the girl 12 or older 4 years later.

They are currently 8 and 4 since she is twice his age. In four years time she will still be 4 only years older than him (no longer twice his age). Since she will then be 12 and he will still be 4 years younger, he will be 8. (12-4 =8)

#### venkat

if boys age = x years, girls age = 2x years,
so boy age =4 years, girl age =2*4=8 years
after 4 years girls age= 8+4 =12 yeras
so Ans is 12 years

#### Vivek Machha

If boy age is 1 then girl age will be 2 so, after 4 years girl age will be 5 years n boy age will be 4

if one side of small cube = x cm
then 8(x^3) = 128
it means (2^3)(x^3)=3/128
so 2x =3/128
it means 2x = one side of a big cube
small cube/big cube = 1/2 =0.5

#### Sameer kumar

boys age = x years
girls age = twice (boys age) = 2x years
as given boysage = 4 years i.e. x=4
girls age = 2 x 4 = 8 years
girls age after 4 years = 8 + 4 = 12 years

#### Rintu Kumar Chowdhury

• Aug 24th, 2017

girls age = boys age * 2 = 4 * 2 = 8
after 4 years, Girls age = 8 + 4 = 12 years.
