I don't have

**the**answer, I only have the one I worked out. So obviously, we did something different with our math. :grin:

In the interest and spirit of the thread T-Nina, go ahead and post the next one.

When you get a chance, I'd like to compare our answers and methods....okay? :) - 03-16-2007, 01:25 PMiwannabeminnie
You already have my answers. :) Cough up yours.

40 is correct for Jessica. I wrote the wrong doodle and added the 20 years to her age.

I have Courtney and Lauren correct.

The other three we agree on. - 03-16-2007, 05:20 PMMandaBella
Yes, after many PMs back and forth. :lol:

So in case anyone is interested, the answer to this logic puzzle is as follows:

Jessica, Jordan, Courtney, Dylan, Savannah, and Lauren are each a different age.

Figure out the age of each person.

1. Lauren's age is seven less than two times the age of Courtney.

2. In twenty years, Jessica's age will be sixty less than three times her current age.

3. Dylan is nineteen years older than Jordan.

4. In fourteen years, Lauren's age will be fifty-three less than three times the age of Courtney.

5. The sum of the ages of Savannah and Dylan is one hundred twenty-eight.

6. Savannah is twenty-two years older than Dylan.

Dylan=53

Savannah=75

Jordan=34

Courtney=18

Lauren=29

Jessica=40

It's now T-Nina's turn! :yes: - 03-16-2007, 05:21 PMiwannabeminnie
I still have an unanswered question out there.

To reiterate:

What has four stander uppers, four hanger downers, two hookers, two lookers, and a swishy-wishy? - 03-16-2007, 05:31 PMdznyfreak42
swishy - wishy..? :inquis:

It isn't a washing machine.

Or a pig. - 03-16-2007, 06:21 PMdznyfreak42
A toilet!

I had said that sentence, but I never heard if that was right.
