How young is he? (Posted on 2011-05-16) Difficulty: 2 of 5
My math teacher was born in a year whose digits add up to 26.

He says that in his birth month the number of days before his birth day is thrice the number of days after it.

How old is he now?

Your analysis provides a correct answer to the question asked. However, I think the birthday is February 22 rather than February 8, as "thrice" means three times, rather than one third.
