## Answers

**Answer:**

**Answer:**

- Present age of Deepika = 22 yrs
- Present age of Vikas = 11 yrs

**Explanation:**

**Explanation:**

Let,

Present age of Deepika = x

and, Present age of her brother Vikas = y

Then, as given that; Deepika is twice as old as her brother Vikas

therefore,

→ Age of Deepika = 2 ( Age of Vikas )

→** x = 2 y ** ___equation (1)

Also given that; Difference of their ages be 11 yrs

therefore,

→ (Age of Deepika) - (Age of Vikas) = 11

→ x - y = 11

Using equation (1)

→ ( 2 y ) - y = 11

→** y = 11 **

Putting value of y in equation (1)

→ x = 2 y

→ x = 2 ( 11 )

→ x = 22

Therefore**,**

**Present age of Deepika = 22 yrs. and****Present age of Vikas = 11 yrs.**
