Age Difference (Posted on 2003-03-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Said Albert to Bertrand, "The last time we met, our ages were both prime numbers, and when I was a quarter of the age I am now, you were that age plus half the age your father would have been thirty years previous to when he was six times the age you would have been when I was half your age".

How old were Albert and Bertrand the last time they met?

Said (the 3years old) Albert to (the 5years old)Bertrand, "The last time we met, our ages were both prime numbers, and when I was a quarter of the age I am now, you were that age plus half the age your father would have been thirty years previous to when he was six times the age you would have been when I was half your age". <p>

How old were Albert and Bertrand the last time they met?

Answer: Those gifted cookies were 2 years old     and  5 years old just one before last time they met, and a year later they met for the last time and the younger of them created this puzzle with primes and fractions.

Some time later Albert came with e=m*c^2 and Bertrand with Russel's paradox.
