Assuming Alan's age > Brian's age
Alan = 10a + b
Brian = 10b + a
Brian = 10 Carol
Alan - Brian = 9a - 9b = 2 Carol = (10b + a)/5
a/b = 5/4
Taking Alan = 54 years, then Brian = 45 years & Carol = 9/2 = 4.5 years.

ab-ba=2x. So 54-45=9(2x=9 >x=4.5)
ba=10x. Then 45=10*4.5 .
So ages of Alan=54, brain=45, Carol=4.5
