Total age of husband, wife and their child at present $\begin{array}{l}\text{= 3 × 27 + 3 × 3}\\ \text{= 90 years}\end{array}$ Total age of wife and child at present $\begin{array}{l}\text{= 20 × 2 + 2 × 5}\\ \text{= 50 years}\\ \text{Husband’s age}\\ \text{= 90 – 50}\\ \text{= 40 years}\end{array}$
