Lets assume dhoni and his older brother are x and y years old as of now.

so x = 2y/5;

and

x+2 = (y+2)/2 => 2x +4 = 2+y => 2x – 5x/2 = -2 => x/2 = 2 => x = 4

and

x-2 = (y-2)/4 => 4x – 8 = y-2 => 4x – 5x/2 = 6 => 3x/2 = 6 => x = 4

and y = 10

so dhoni is 4years old now.

so x = 2y/5;

and

x+2 = (y+2)/2 => 2x +4 = 2+y => 2x – 5x/2 = -2 => x/2 = 2 => x = 4

and

x-2 = (y-2)/4 => 4x – 8 = y-2 => 4x – 5x/2 = 6 => 3x/2 = 6 => x = 4

and y = 10

so dhoni is 4years old now.
