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?

Hi, broll

I admire both your imagination and style.

However 2 elements in your story are slightly incoherent:

a) A & B ARE STEPBROTHERS, NOT BROTHERS

b}Why should A know his father's  age?

I've revised the text- and if ever it is published, I will be happy to read  the sequel to your "Brothers Karamazov" ,

If you wish, I will  Email it to you for proof-solving.
