Maths Week puzzle for Tuesday


How old is Granny?

Tom asked his Granny how old she was.
Rather than giving him a straight answer,
she replied:

“I have 6 children, and there are 4 years between each one and the next.
I had my first child (your Uncle Peter) when I was 19.
Now the youngest one (Your Auntie Jane) is 19 herself.
That’s all I’m telling you!”
