The aptitude is the section which usually comes in every competitive exam paper. One of the most important topics of the aptitude section is ages. Here in this post, you will get to know **how to solve age related questions for SSC easily with short tricks and tips**. Many questions were asked in the exam are from the ages. There are several patterns of the problem which come in exam. To solve the Ages Problems in Quant Section, students require to learn the **best trick and tips to solve age related problems** i.e. direct and indirect technique. This is one of the **best methods to solve the ages related questions in ****aptitude**** quickly**. Our motto during the quantitative exam is to resolving the problem with high accuracy rate rapidly. Therefore to achieve accuracy and speed, we are providing you some solved questions and formulas by which you can learn Age topic very efficiently. The aging method needs the sound knowledge of basic concepts.

**Problems on Ages**: Many times it is easier to solve the problems by watching the given choices in the questions and sometimes it is too tricky. But we assure you by this direct and indirect approach you can solve many types of ages question quickly. In this post, you will get tricks for ages problems which will be beneficial for you for the exam. Although it is too difficult to cover all the type of question we covered most of them. Let discuss **Short Tricks to Solve Problems on Ages in ****Aptitude ** for your understanding. Before start our topic pages, we should understand what direct value is? Or what is the indirect value? Here we go.

**Direct Value:**Direct value is also called as realistic value which means the given figure is real.

Example: the sum of ages of Ram and Shyam is 57 years. That means, 57 is the real figure which is the age of Ram and Shyam.

**Indirect value:**The indirect value are those which not show any real figure. The value which is given in ratio, fraction and Percentage are always indirect value.

*: - It is the value of that direct value. Here we perform Indirect Value**

Let us, understanding this topic more by below illustrative examples.

__Examples-__

**Question:** If the ratio of ages of A and B is 7:2 while the sum of their ages is 45 years. What is the age of B?

**Solution**: Given,

Direct Value= 45

Indirect value=7:2

Indirect value of that direct value: 7+2= 9

We will solve this question by using below mentioned formula because here direct value is the addition of ages of A and B. Hence, ratio of their ages will also be added.

Indirect Value (which is asked in question) = Age of B

Therefore,

Indirect Value= Age of B= 2

Now, we will solve some good questions.

**Question 1: **Ratios of ages of A, B and C is 5:7:3. If sum of Ages of A and B is 36 years, then what will be the sum of age of B and C?

**Solution 1: **Given-

Ratios of age A, B and C= 5:7:3

Sum of ages of A and B= 36 years

Find, sum of age of B and C

Therefore by using formula we get,

Now after putting the value in the above formula we get,

Hence, we concluded that __Sum of ____agesof____ B and C is 30 years__.

**Question 2: **Ratio of ages of A, B, C and D is 5:2:4:7. If C is elder than B by 12 years, then for how many years D is elder than B?

**Solution 2**: Given-

Ratios of ages A, B, C, and D= 5:2:4:7

C is elder than B by 12 years

We can solve this question by Using formula,

Now we get,

So the answer is that the __D is 30 years elder than B__.

**Question 3**: Ratios of ages of A, B and c are 3:4:5. If age of B is 24 years, then find the difference of ages of A and C?

**Solution 3**: given-

Ratios of ages A, B and C= 3:4:5

Age of B= 24 years

By using this formula we will calculate the difference of A and C ages

Now we get,

So the answer is that the __difference between the age of A and C is 12 years__.

**Question 4: **Ratios of Ages of A and B is 5:3 while sum of their ages after 4 years will be 56 years. What is the difference of their current age?

**Solution 4**: Current Age ratio of A and B= 5:3

After 4 years the sum of age of A and B= 56 years

So the current age + age = 56-4-4

- 48 years

We got,

Hence, the __difference between the current age of A and B is 12 years__.

We hope you understand the concept mentioned above. Here we provided easy formulas to solve age’s problems.
