## Two Aging MathematiciansMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
Two aging mathematics professors, Al Gebra and Cal Culus were sitting at their favourite Thai restaurant, Phun Kshuns, reminiscing about when they first met, while their waiter, Theo Rumsanrools (who also took Professor Gebra's Advanced Mathematics course at Cart Eshian University) eavesdropped on their conversation as he brought them their meals.
"You know what occurred to me the other day, Cal?" asked Professor Gebra. "What's that?" said Professor Culus. "Well, when we met, the square of your age contained the same three digits as the square of my age, just in a different order," Professor Gebra continued. "This will really blow your socks off then, Al! If you take the square of the sum of our ages when we met and split it into two 2-digit numbers, you'd have my age then and your age now!" Professor Culus exclaimed. Wanting to impress his professor, Theo interjected. "I thought you were much younger than that, Professor Gebra," Theo said. Said Professor Gebra, "And just how old am I then, young fellow?" ## What Next?
