x= 3/5

Let: x = marios age now y = son's age So... x = 5y (x-3) = 5(y-3) Plugging that in: 5y - 3 = 5y - 15 Something's wrong...?

since mario is 5 times something = 5x and when they say 3 years ago so it's -3 = 5x - 3 = 0, solve for x and x = 3/5 I guess :)

solve x = 4y and (x-3) = 5(y-3). you'll get x=48, y=12
