A father and son are chatting when the son poses this question: "Dad, I'm 22 now, but just how old are you?"
The father replies, "You wanna know how old your old man is, eh? Hmm, well, I tell you what. I'm as old as your age, plus half of my age."
How old is the father?
"I'm as old as your age, plus half of my age."
So how many years is half the father's age?
Half of the father's age plus the son's age should give you the answer, which means that half the father's age must be equal to the son's age.
The son is 22, so the father must be 44.
