Walt is 40 and his son is 12 because 8 years ago their ages added up to 52, you subtract 16 because it was 8 years ago for each of them, 52-16=36, start out with 2 numbers that equal 36 and multiply the lower number by 8, you should end up with 4 and 32, add 8 to both of the years and Walt is 40 while his son is 12, currently.

Age of W is mentioned as 52. But it should be 40. J is 12. So total is 52. eight years back their ages are 32 and 4. So W age is eight times more than J.
