The Brothers Ages Aptitude Problem is as follows :

**Question :**

Bharath is 5 years elder than Akash who is 4 years elder than Raghu. The sum of their ages is 61. Find the age of Akash.

**Solution :**

From the question, it is obvious that Raghu is the youngest brother. Let his age be **x.**

Now Akash’s age is = **x** + 4

and Bharaths age is = 5 + Akash’s age = 5 + (**x** + 4) = **x **+ 9

So sum of all the ages is = **x** + (**x** + 4) + (**x** + 9) => 3**x** + 13 = 61.

3**x** = 61 -13 = 48

Implies , **x** = 48/3 = 16

This is Raghu’s age. Hence Akash’s age is 16 + 4 = 20 yrs
