Age Ascertainment V (Posted on 2014-06-23) Difficulty: 1 of 5
A common friend asks Saul and Maisy their respective ages.
They say:

Saul: I am certainly not over 40.
Maisy: I am 38.
Saul: Maisy is at least 39.
Maisy: Saul is at least 5 years older than me.

All the statements by Saul and Maisy are false. How old are they in reality?

Some Thoughts re: Decimal Ages Comment 3 of 3 |
(In reply to Decimal Ages by Steve Herman)

If decimal ages are allowed (with two digits of precision),-
..you    probably were thinking of fractional,  the ages as stated were decimal.

If you have spare time on your hands  you  may     try:
If hexadecimal ages    are allowed (with 0     or    2  digits of precision),...etc..
