While house hunting in chennai, i came across a very good leasehold property discussing the land lady told me : The property was originally on a 99 years lease and two-thirds of the time passed is equal to four-fifths of the time to come .Now work it out for yourself and see how many years are there to go ! .

  1. Let X be the time already passed.
    Now (2/3)x X = (4/5)x(99-X)
    Equating both the sides X=54

    54 years in the total 99 years lease is passed already.

    There are 45 years yet to go valid remaining lease period!
