Bibhu said to Bigyata, "I was twice as old as you were when I was as old as you are.". If the sum of their ages is 35 years, find their present ages.
Let the present ages of Bibhu and Bigyata be $x$ years and $y$ years respectively. From the second statement of the question: $x+y=35$.
But I did not understand the first condition(the first statement) given in the question. Please help.
