Five years ago Vicki's age was v-5 and Grace's age was 4v-5. At this time there was an age difference of 30 years (4v-5) -(v-5) = 30 4v - 5 - v + 5 = 30 3v=30 v=10 i.e. Vicki's age is 10 and Grace's age is 40. 5 years ago Vicki was 5 and Grace was 35. Note : The difference in their ages is always 30 years!
