All in the family (Posted on 2011-11-20) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Teenager A: I found an interesting relation between my age and the age of my father. Multiplying my age by the age of my father I get the same result if we use the correct ages or if both of us reverse the ages' digits prior to the multiplication.
Same happens if I do it with my grandfather's or even with my aged grand-grand father's ages.
B, A's brother: That applies to my age as well.
C, a friend: My age, too. But no grand-grandfather...
All the ages (A,B,C) are distinct.
What are they?

My bad.

The word "teenager" was erroneously introduced by my humble self, translating from Russian.

Please solve it, keeping in mind that:

1.A and B are brothers.

2. All 2-digit numbers are allowed (generation gap>17)

3. There is possibility of more than one solution

4. Programs are permitted, but not really necessary.

I'm sorry - still my error was detected.
