    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!
