# The Giggling Pixies

There were two giggling pixies, the old one and the young one. The old one is 120 years old, and the young one is 32 years old. How old will the old pixie be when he is exactly twice as old as the young one?

### Answer

The old pixie is 88 years older than the young pixie. This means that the old pixie would be 176 years old when the young pixie would be 88 years old. However, do not worry because neither of these creatures will be able to age that much.Hide Answer Show Answer

this one was a bit silly but a nice fun one

i didnt get it at first but now i do!

Old = 120, Y = 32

X = How many years from now

120 + X = 2 (32 + X)

120 = 64 + X

56 = X

Old will be 120 + 56 = 176

X = How many years from now

120 + X = 2 (32 + X)

120 = 64 + X

56 = X

Old will be 120 + 56 = 176

...

Not sure what those are. Good algebra problem though.

Easy but fun

I got that one, and I just guessed on how to do it Somehow, my brain just got it. Good job.

How will the young one not live that long? The old one is 120, so the young one should age into 88...

Anyways, good quiz!
