    Goku said he was 12 at the 21st tournament(and this is after he has learned to count). The tournaments were 3 years apart, so that makes it easy to tell how old he is in the next 2 tournaments. And at the beginning of DBZ, it's stated that it's been 5 years since DB.

    By the end of DBZ, Goku's mind would be 46-47 years old, his body would be 38-39 years old.

    At the 21st tournament, Goku is 12 and Krillin is 13.
    The start of DB is about 9 months before the tournament, so Goku could be 11 or 12, and Krillin could have been 12 or 13.

    I think planet Vegeta was destroyed 23-24 years before Frieza went to planet Namek. And when planet Vegeta was destroyed Goku was only a few days old. Being sent to Earth so I would say he was about 23 or 24 years old. At the start of DragonBall Z but after the Frieza saga most of the other sagas took place years later. So I would say he was in his 40s. At the end of Dragonball Z.

    Are you sure it had been 5? I thought it was 6.
