**Dan says to Lisa: "Did you know that the difference between you and Peter is the exact number of years it was since Rani was my age?"**

Lisa says to Dan: "Yes, I knew that. But do you know that if you add all our ages together you get a cube number?

Lisa says to Dan: "Yes, I knew that. But do you know that if you add all our ages together you get a cube number?

Rani says: "Here we go again! As usual the twins are trying to outsmart each other."

Rani says: "Here we go again! As usual the twins are trying to outsmart each other."

Peter says: "In two years Dan will be as old and clever as me."

Frm d puzzle we can deduce thus:having L,P,R and D as d ages of Lisa, peter, rani and dan. We have l-p=r-d and dan with Lisa are twins so l=d again d+2=p which means l+2=p and again dat l+d+r+p=cube number ie a number raise to power 3. After my long simultaneous equation and substitutioning I got dat peter-4yrs, dani and Lisa the twins-2yrs andd rani is 1yr old. Thanks

ReplyDeleteGood effort. You got many concepts correctly. But try again. You can do it

ReplyDeleteGood effort cos you got many concepts correctly. Like the fact that twins are of equal ages and cube is a power of three. Just a little more effort and you might get it!

DeleteYour equations don't have to be long! Have fun

Let us have them as follows.

ReplyDeleteLisa=L

Peter=P

Dan=D

Rani=R

R-x=D

L-P=x

L+P+D+R=Y^3

L=D

P+2=D...P=D-2

L-D+2=x and L=D...L-L+2=x...x=2

R-2=D...R=D+2

From,

L+P+D+R=Y^3

We have,

2D+(D-2)+(D+2)=Y^3

2D+D-2+D+2=Y^3

4D=Y^3...For 4D to be=Y^...D must be=D^2

4*4*4=Y^3

Y=64..= Total ages

And 4D=64, ...D=16

From P=D-2,..P=14

From R=D+2,..R=18

And L=D=16

Y^3=L+P+D+R

64=16+14+16+18

This tends to be true since they are all teenagers. Peace.
