Solution :-

Let Baichung's father's age be x years. Therefore, Baichung's age and Baichung's grandfather's age will be (x - 29) years and (x + 26) years respectively.

According to the given question, the sum of the ages of these 3 people is 135 years.

∴ x + x - 29 + x + 26 = 135

3x - 3 = 135

On transposing 3 to R.H.S, we obtain

3x = 135 + 3

3x = 138

On dividing both sides by 3, we obtain

\(\frac{3x}{3} = \frac{138}{3}\)

x = 46

Baichung's father's age = x years = 46 years

Baichung's age = (x - 29) years = (46 - 29) years = 17 years

Baichung's grandfather's age = (x + 26) years = (46 + 26) years = 72 years
