You can make a 20 word sentence about the ages of Amy and Ann by following the jumps of a chess knight from word to word in the above diagram.

Given that Amy is in her teens, and each of the ages of Amy and Ann is expressible in integer number of years, how old is each of Amy and Ann?

You had me sweating for a minute there, K. ;) Thanks for the correction!

The sentence:
Ann is now half as old as Amy was when Ann was a third as old as Amy is now.

Designating the rows 1-4 and the columns A-E:
C4 A3 B1 D2 E4 C3 A4 B2 D1 E3 C2 A1 B3 D4 E2 C1 A2 B4 D3 E1.

The math, however, will have to wait til later...
