Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 10/06/2005

The famous mathematician Dr. Square Root had two sons, exactly a year apart. One day, shortly after they had both turned a year older, he noticed that if you squared their ages and then added the squares the total would be 1105. How old were his sons?

24 and 23 years old. Solve this equation. If x is the age of the oldest son, then x-1 is the age of the youngest. So x^2 + (x-1)^2 = 1105. Expand and simply, then plug into quadratic equation and bingo answer.

Jon & I were just debating on killing the Mensa question since noone answers. I guess we'll keep it going.

BTW, you are correct.

I believe I have mentioned already where these questions are from...perhaps if you were smart enough to read back and adult enough to not throw insults anonymously you would be able to have a discussion.

I think your problem is that you are not MENSA material and you are acting out on that anger.

Tsk, tsk...to be so dumb.
