The grandfather is three years older than an grandmother. The average age of the grandmother, the grandfather and their seven grandchildren is 28 years. The grandchildren have a total of 105 years. Calculate how old is grandfather.

Correct result:

o =  75

Solution:


o = m + 3
(m+o+7•v)/(1+1+7) = 28
v = 105/7

m-o = -3
0.111111m+0.111111o+0.777778v = 28
7v = 105

m = 72
o = 75
v = 15
