    12 years and 16 years

    Step-by-step explanation:

    their ages are in the ratio 3 : 4

    let Anjali = 3x and Aditya = 4x ← present ages

    In 8 years then

    Anjali = 3x + 8 and Aditya = 4x + 8, hence

    3x + 8 + 4x + 8 = 44 ← sum of their ages in 8 years

    7x + 16 = 44 (subtract 16 from both sides)

    7x = 28 (divide both sides by 7)

    x = 4

    Anjali is 3x = 3 * 4 = 12 years old and Aditya = 4x = 4 * 4 = 16 years old
