Pupil

I'm a primary school pupil. I attended the parents' exercises with children 1/4 of my age, 1/3 for drawing, and 1/6 for flute. For the first three years of my life, I had no ring, and I never went to two rings simultaneously. How old am I?

Correct answer:

x =  12

Step-by-step explanation:


x/4+x/3+x/6+3=x

3x = 36

x = 12
