 Age Ascertainment II (Posted on 2013-02-01)

The ages of Ambrose, Brandon and Chester can be related to the diagram above so that when just one digit is written in each box:
1. A across is Ambrose's age in years.
2. A down is the sum of Ambrose's and Brandon's age in years.
3. B across is the sum of Ambrose's age, Brandon's age and Chester's age in years.
4. Two of Ambrose, Brandon and Chester are the same age in years.
Who is a different age in years from the other two?

If A=B=10, for example, then A+B would be 20 (that is, Ambrose and Brandon). But Ambrose  (A across) is supposed to start with the same digit as Ambrose+Brandon (A down).
