### Brain Teasers

# Guess My Age

Math
Math brain teasers require computations to solve.

I've had a very peculiar life. For the first quarter of my life, I played no sports at all. After that, I only played one sport at a time.

After the first quarter, I played only baseball for ten years. I got tired of that so I switched to only playing tennis for nine years. Next, for the past eight years, I've only been running. How old am I?

### Hint

Add up the years after the first quarter to find the last 3 quarters.### Answer

I am 36 years old.10+9+8=27

27/(3/4)=36

That was a good one. I was way off with my answer.

I thought it was pretty easy but I enjoy math that doesn't have me hitting things around me.

Just like NTaliesen, Math was my favorite subject. Got this fairly easy, but still enjoy having to pull out a sheet of paper and do a few figures! Keep it up!

to easy

No sweat!

normally i get stressed out with the math ones but this was very easy ! so i loved it !

This is a very average teaser, based on a tired and overused principle, and with only a single fraction. There is nothing novel or clever about this, yet it has a rating (at the time I rated it) of 2.76 on the fun scale. I don't get it.

This is neither hard nor interesting.
