## Three generations

Math brain teasers require computations to solve.

 Puzzle ID: #270 Fun: (2.51) Difficulty: (1.82) Category: Math Submitted By: Phyllis

Grandpa Jones says:
`My son Adam is 24 years younger than me and 35 years older than my grandson, Joey. Together our total ages add up to 100.` Can you figure out the age of each one of them?

### Answer

Grandpa Jones was 24 when Adam was born and Joey was born 35 years later, so Grandpa has to be at least 59 years old. Add this to Adam`s age at Joey`s birth to get a total age of 94. If Joey was 1 year old, the total combined ages would be 97 (adding 1 year to every age.) But, if Joey is 2 years old then Grandpa would be 61 and Adam would be 37 and their combined ages would be 100.
