    Step-by-step explanation:

    A= 2S

    (A-5)=3(S-5)

    A-5=3S-15

    2S-5= 3S-15

    10=S

    A=20

    Age of Arjun=20yrs

    Age of Shriya= 10yrs

    Let us take shriya’s present age to be x years.

    ☞shriya’s age five years ago was(x-5)years.

    ☞Arjun’s age five years ago was (2x-5)years.

    It is given that Arjun’s age five years ago was three times shriya’s age.

    Thus, 2x-5 =3 (x-5)

    ━ 2x-5 =3x-15

    ━ 15-5 =3x-2x

    ━ 10 =x

    So,Shriya’s age=x=10 years.

    ᴛʜᴇʀᴇꜰᴏʀᴇ,ᴀʀᴊᴜɴ’ꜱ ᴘʀᴇꜱᴇɴᴛ ᴀɢᴇ=2x=2×10=20 ʏᴇᴀʀꜱ.
