# Question #5db8f

##### 1 Answer

Parag is

#### Explanation:

Let's say that **current age** and **current age**.

You know that

#p + k = 75" "color(blue)("( * )")#

Now, you also know that Parag is **three times as old** as Kalyan was when Parag was

In other words, you can say that *now*.

This means that Kalyan's age when Parag was three times as old as he was is

#k - (p - k) = 2k - p#

Therefore, you can say that you have

#p = 3 * (2k - p)#

#p = 6k - 3p#

#4p = 6k implies p = (6k)/4 = (3k)/2#

Plug this into equation

#(3k)/2 + k = 75#

#3k + 2k = 150#

#5k = 150 implies k = 150/5 = 30#

Consequently, you will have

#p = 75 - 30 = 45#

Therefore, you can say that Parag is **years old** and Kalyan is **years old**.

As you can see, Parag is **years old** now and Kalyan was **years old** when Parag was
