Nick drew Sam’s short straw, so once we were on the boat it was his turn to face a puzzle challenge.
Sam said, “At this very moment a woman is 21 years older than her child. In exactly 6 years from now she will be precisely 5 times older than the child.”
I could see the wheels turning in Nick’s mind.
“The question is this,” Sam said, “where is the father right now?”
Nick paused a second, surprised. But suddenly he relaxed and said, “he’s right next to the mother, I suspect.”
The child is 5.4 years old right now.
The child is currently being conceived: -9 months old.
The child is 1. The mother is 29. In six years the child will be 7 and the mother will be 35. 35/7 = 5.
Nevermind, I completely skipped over the mother being 21 years older than the child. The correct answer is:
The child has just been born (if the child was carried for 9 months).
The baby is -0.75, minus 9 months…or in other words, being conceived as we speak.
Hehe. The child is -9 months old…
child is 3
The child is currently 6.75 years old (and the mom is 27.75 years old).
Proof: Let c=child’s age, m=mom’s age
1. m = 21 + c (mom is 21 year’s older than child)
=> 27.75 = 21 + 6.75
=> 27.75 = 27.75 is true
2. m + 6 = 5 * c (mom will be 5 times as old as child’s current age in 6 years)
=> 27.75 + 6 = 5 * 6.75
=> 33.75 = 33.75 is true
I imagine the child is just conceived.
The child is -3/4 years old… or, it is 9 months before the child is born. Thus why the father is right next to the mother right now
the child is being conceived
It´s nine month before it´s birth. That´s why the father should be right beside the mother
9 months old!
The baby was conceived a month ago…I think.
woman = Y
child = X
woman is 21 years older: Y = X+21
in 6 years: Y+6 = 5(X+6)
Y+6 = 5X+30
Y = 5X+24
5X+24 = X+21
-4X = 3
X = -3/4
the child is -3/4 years old. 3/4 of a year is 9 months, so the child is -9 months old… (s)he’s being conceived!
Oooh no scratch my last answer. The kid was just concieved.
The child is -.75 years, so it will be born in about 9 months.
Six and three quarters.
6 years and 9 months old.
The child is minus 3/4 of a year, which is near enough to conception as to make Sam’s answer feasible!
The child is currently -0.75, or minus 9 months, or currently being conceived
The child is being born.
The child is -.75 of a year, or -9 months. He’s just been conceived. And that’s why the father is right next to the mother! It all makes sense now!
LOL good question!
-.75yr, or more conventionally, nine months away from birth or right around the time of conception.
9 month before birth
