Maths revision

The mother is 21 years older than the child. In 6 years from now the mother will be 5 times as old as the child.

Question: Where's the father?

Hint: Calculate the age of the child first.

I'll post the answer tonight if no one gets it.

Too easy!
The father is "with" the mother.

The child is -3/4yrs old.
That is, will not be born for another 9months.

Where's my prize?

For those who want to see the maths behind this, here we go....

Let the childs age be X in years

Then

(X+21)+6=5(X+6)

(Mother Age Now) + Five Years = Six times (Childs Age now plus Five years)

X+27=5X+30
-4X=3
X=-3/4 year old.

Ie the fathers getting his end in......


:s6:
