Let x be the current age of Mr. Chan's son, so (x + 32) is the current age of Mr. Chan.

(x + 6) + [(x + 32) + 6] = 50

2x + 44 = 50

x = (50 - 44) / 2 = 3

Mr. Chan's son is 3 years old.

Assume Mr chan's age is x and his son's age is s

6 years later:

(x - 32 = s) = (x + s = 50)

(x = 32 + s) = (x = 50 - s)

32+s = 50-s

32+2s= 50

2s=18

s=9

9-6=3

His son is 3

Let x+32 and x be the present ages of Mr Chan and his son

then x+38 and x+6 will be the ages after 6 years

(x+38)+(x+6)= 50

2x + 44 = 50

x=3
