A streetcar named Enigma (Posted on 2010-02-10) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Two years ago, traveling with my friend (a logic wiz) I have purchased two streetcar tickets, consecutively numbered. I told my friend that the sum of all ten digits equals 62, which was his age. He than asked me whether the sum of digits (s.o.d) of either of the tickets equals my age (which he knew) and upon getting my answer quoted exactly both 5-digit numbers.

What were the numbers?
Am I over 50 today?

(In reply to almost empiric solution by Elisabeth)

Ellsabeth,

Your reasoning is ok, some typos need to be corrected:-

42==>44    44==>46

You may edit your  post - and still not know my age.
