    Post a question about a person's age

    Dear friends,

    If someone is in his late forties, does it mean that he's about 48, 49 years old?

    If someone is about 42, 43 years old, how do we say it? in his ? forties

    Thank you!

    Yes. Or more generally, over about 46.

    ... in his early forties.
    You can also say someone is in their mid-forties. ~43 - 47.
    Naturally, you don't know their age, so the age ranges are approximate.

    Thank you!
