Four years ago, let Ram’s age be years. ∴ Shyam’s age at thattime years

∴ Ram’s present age=(years and Shyam’s present age= years.

Again in next four years, times the age of Ram will be equal to the age of Shyam

∴

∴ Present age of Shyam =years

**Alternative Method:**

In problem

∴ Present age of Shyam =

= as years
