Wow you have to read that thing backwards in order to understand it.

I think it's 36.

when sharron was 24, she was twice as old as graham.

That would make graham 12. now that graham is 24 you would have to add 12 years to 24 making 36.

Am i doing it rite?


I'm sorry I didn't read this since I was caught by the question. I think I just re-typed what you said, again, I'm sorry.

You don't have to be anywhere near a scientist to be able to answer this. I gave a similar question to some grade 8s that i tutor and they got it. And its 36.

24?

sharon is twice as old as graham was when sharon was as old as graham is now. graham is 24. from a literal interpretation:

sharon's age is double that of graham's age (12) when she was 24. whuuuut!!

i feel kinda stupid..

edit:

so i should add 12? hate it!

the answer is not 36 and for others is not 32, and yes i am a scientist, a forensic psychologist. took me less than 30 sec to work out and around the same or less amount of time with my colleagues and other fellow scientists. my friend is a mathematician and took him over 5 minutes while my other friend is a lawyer and still can't work out the answer. try again

edit:as with lawyer, my other friend is a special needs teacher and doesn;t even have a clue

sharon is twice as old as graham was when sharon was as old as graham is now.
if graham is 24, how old is sharon?

sharon was 24
hence grahma was 12
so, the difference in age is 12
so, now tht graham is 24.
sharon age is 24+12=36
