I wrote down five different twodigit numbers:
 My age
 My house number
 The sum of those first two numbers
 The difference between those first two numbers
 Half of one of those first four numbers
I chose to write down the names of the numbers in letters rather than use digits (e.g. "thirty six").
Surprisingly, I noticed that each of the five numbers had the same number of letters in its name.
What were the last three numbers I wrote?
Your age and house number are 21 and 65.
The sum of those two numbers is 86.
The difference of those two numbers is 44.
Half of 44 is 22.
All four numbers are nine letters (with the hyphen, ten characters) in length:
21 = twentyone
22 = twentytwo
44 = fortyfour
65 = sixtyfive
86 = eightysix
The last three numbers you wrote are: 86, 44, and 22.
