**After 5 years, the age of father will be two times the age of the son. Write a linear equation in two variables to represent this statement.**

###### Answers:

### Let father’s present age be = x years

Son’s present age = y years

After 5 years father’s age will be = (x + 5) years

After 5 years son’s age will be = (y + 5) years

According to the question:

x + 5 = 2(y + 5)

x + 5 = 2y + 10

x – 2y = 10 – 5

x – 2y = 5
