Let x &ndash; age of mother, y &ndash; age of daughter
The age of mother is 4 times her daughter age: we have the first equation x = 4y
After 5 years the sum of their ages will be 60: in 5 year the age of mother will be (x+5), the age of daughter will be (y+5), we have the second equation (x+5)+(y+5) = 60
So, we have the system of equations:
x = 4y
x+y+10 = 60
(from the 2nd equation x = 50 &ndash; y, put it in the 1st one: 4y = 50 &ndash; y, y = 10, x = 4y = 40)
The roots: x = 40, y = 10
The answer: now mother&rsquo;s age is 40 years old, daughter&rsquo;s age is 10 years old
