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!”

Eoin

My answer is 62

I think toms granny is 58 . Because ….. Her youngest child is 19 and if there are 4 years between each one that equals to 39

Maths = 19+4+4+4+4+4=39

Then add the age she was when she had her first child . “19”

Maths : 39+19=58

So 58 is my answer
