**The ratio of Paul's age to Sue's age is 4:3. In 8 years' time the sum of their ages will be 86. What is Paul's age now?**

**Solution**

7 units + 8 + 8 --> 86

7 units --> 86 - 8 - 8 = 70

7 units --> 70

1 unit --> 70 divided by 7 = 10

Paul's age now

4 units --> 4 x 10 = 40

**Answer: 40 years old**
