Let the child be 'x' years old right now.
So the mum must be x + 21 years of age.
So, After 6 years the mum will be x + 21 + 6 = x + 27
years old and the child will be (x + 6) years old
at that time.
So from the given information we get,
5*(x+6)=x+27
Therefore,
5*x+30=x+27
Therefore,
4*x=27-30
Therefore
4*x=-3
Therefore
x=-3/4
But -3/4 years = -3/4 * 12 months
i.e. the child is -9 months right now.
This means the child is just getting conceived.
Hence the father of the child must be in bed with
the mum right now!
