  • An acceptable answer, but can you tell us why?

  • .75 years = 9 months
    moms giving birth

  • Yes! You nailed it, Jenny.

    Question : Where’s the father?
    The mother is 21 years older than the child.
    M = C + 21

    In 6 years from now the mom will be 5 times as old as the child.
    M + 6 = 5 x (C + 6)

    Hence,
    C + 21 + 6 = (C + 6) x 5
    C + 27 = 5C + 30
    -3 = 4C
    C = -3/4

    The child is -3/4 years old, i.e. it will be born in 9 months.

    So right now, the father is on top of the mother.
