 Hill's data (Posted on 2018-03-03)
“I am old,” said Mr Methuselah, “but not as old as the Hills.
Did you know that if you add up the ages of all the Hills exceptin’ Mr Hill you get his age?
And did you know that if you multiply the ages of all the Hills except Mr Hill you get a number which contains ones only, and as many ones as there are Hills, not counting Mr Hill?
Every Hill has a different age less than 100, and every Hill’s age in years is odd, exceptin’, of course, Mr Hill.”

I didn’t know this. How could I? I had only just arrived in Rome, Georgia, and knew nothing of the locality. But once he had told me it sure set me to wondering:

How old is Mr Hill?
How old is Mrs Hill?
And how old are the Hillocks?

Hope you give me the answers...

 Hills and Hillocks Comment 6 of 6 |
Mr. Hill is 72 and Mrs. Hill is 37. The Hillocks are 1, 3, 7, 11, and 13. The Hillocks are the kids of the Hills. Also, 1+3+7+11+13+37=72 and 1*3*7*11*13*37=111111.
