Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 10/24/2005

It's difficult being called on unexpectedly in class, but Professor Jones decided to do it to wake up his sleeping students. "I don't mind if you know my age," he said. "It's in all the directories, and I can assume the approximate age of one of you. No written homework tonight for the first person who can solve this: If you subtract one age from mine, you'll get 44, but if you multiply them together, you'll get 1280." It took Tom fifteen seconds, because he tried his age in the problem, and it was right. How old were Tom and the professor?
