Hello This sum should take you no more than 5 seconds if you see the Magic with the numbers The ratio increases from 5:6 to 6:7 .. means one on each side... In this case, how much time is past gives us the answer.

See, after 7 years, ratio increases from 5:6 to 6:7, means each 1 part of the ratio is 7 years itself! Hence X's age is 6 X 7 = 42 I hope you Understood Leave me a comment otherwise! Math is Beautiful Its like poetry If Math doesn't give you your expected answer, then don't Blame Math.
