Considering the age of younger one is X
age of younger one = x
the the age of older one = x+10-----> eqn1

15 years ago
age of younger one = x-15
age of older one = 2*(x-15)

With eqn1
2*(x-15) = x+10-15
-> 2x-30 = x-5
-> 2x-x = -5+30
-> x = 25

X=25 is the present age of younger person and 25+10=35 is teh age of older person.
