Hint: - Here we go through by supposing the age of rakhi be x then the mother age becomes 4x as given in the question. Then calculate accordingly to the question for finding the value of x.

$\Rightarrow 4x + 5 = 3(x + 5) \\ \Rightarrow 4x + 5 = 3x + 15 \\ \Rightarrow 4x - 3x = 15 - 5 \\$
$\therefore x = 10$
the age of Rakhi’s mother= 4x years = $4 \times 10 = 40$years.
