This is a constant-difference case: no matter when, the mother and daughter's age will always differ by 30 years.

So when mother is 4 times age of daughter,
3 units ---> 30 years
1 unit ---> 10 years
that is, daughter will then be 10 years old.

Now, 5 parts ---> 30 years
so that 1 part ---> 6 years
that is, daughter is now 6 years old.

Thus, it will be in 10 - 6 = 4 years' time.

Cheerio!
