Solution :-

Let Shobo's age be x years. Therefore, his mother's age will be 6x years.

According to the given question,

After 5 year, shobo's age = \( \frac{shobo's\, mother's\,present\,age}{3}\)

x + 5 = \(\frac{6x}{3}\)

x + 5 = 2x

Transposing x to R.H.S, we obtain

5 = 2x - x

5 = x

6x = 6 × 5 = 30

Therefore, the present ages of Shobo and Shobo's mother will be 5 years and 30 years respectively.
