Shouldn't that be a Math teaser?

I think the answer is 18.

There are 140 days between Mar 30 and Aug 17. Subtract 50 days to get 90. 1/5 of 90 is 18.

"50 days ago" was 72 days after Mar 30, but that is not what the teaser asks.

I agree the answer is 18. It is also not very clear what the "4 times as many as" compares to. I suppose the answer.

I didn't understand the problem. Not a bad teaser though.

HUH??? i dont get it..

Good teaser. Thanks!

I used mysql to solve this. If anyone is interested, my (trivial) code is at https://pastebin.com/j9h9fH76
