1/12

Explanation:

Draw a rectangle. Then draw three vertical lines inside to split the rectangle into 4 equal pieces. Shade one of the pieces to represent 1/4.

Now draw 2 horizontal lines to split that 1/4 piece into three equal smaller pieces. You should end up with a 3 by 4 grid of small squares.  There are 3*4 = 12 small squares total.

Each person gets 1/12 of a unit of ribbon, when we started off with 1/4 of a unit of ribbon. Notice how 3*(1/12) = 3/12 = 1/4.

Refer to the diagram below.

The wood before starting =12 feet

Left wood=6 feet

Wood used till now=12-6=6 feet

Picture frame built till now= 6/(3/4)

=8 pieces

Therefore, till now 8 pieces have been made.

Let the father's age be x and son's be y

10 years before-

Father age=x-10

sons age=y-10

Given,

x-10=10(y-10)

x-10=10y-100

Given present age of father=40

therefore,

x=40

40-10=10y-100

10y-100=30

10y=130

y=130/10

y=13

Therefore present age of son=13years
