Roy is now 4 year older than Erik and half of that amount than Lewis. If in two years Roy will be twice as old as Erick, then in two year what would be Roy age multiplied by Lewis age?? Ans is 48 Firstly two equations from 1st sentence... Suppose Roy=x, Erik=y, Lewis=z So x=y+4.... (1) 2nd is x=z+2... (2) (Roy is now 4 year older than Erik and half of that amount t han Lewis so 4/2=2) Also after 2 years Erik and Roy relation will b X+2=2(y+2)... (3) So put this into 1st equation. U will get y=2...

And then x=6, z=4(by substituting other) Now asking multiplication after two years of Roy n Lewis is (6+2)*(4+2) =48... 39. My name is PREET.
