|←||036 - Too Many Mice||037 - Brother and Sister||038 - Island Hopping||→|
A boy and his big sister are sitting around the kitchen table chatting.
"You know, Sis, if I took away two years from my age and gave them to you, you'd be twice my age, huh!"
"Well, why don't you just give me one more on top of that? Then I'll be three times your age."
So just how old is each sibling?
For each year the brother gives to his sister, his age decreases by one.
When he loses two years, the sister becomes twice his age. When he loses three years, his sister becomes three times his age.
If you're feeling stumped, try graphing the information you have out on paper.
- US Version
The conditions in the puzzle only work out if both the brother and sister are currently six.
The two siblings must have been born within a year of each other.
- UK Version
The conditions in the puzzle only work out if both the brother and sister are currently six years old.
The two siblings are actually twins!
