Age Problems

 ! This post is a part of the Special Questions Directory focusing on Quant topics traditionally neglected and not covered by conventional sources but still tested on the GMAT. Many of these are above average difficulty questions

This type of questions are a sub-category of word problems and are quite common for the GMAT. For example, OG13 and Quantitative Review have several questions of this type. Most often they are PS questions and quite easy to solve, though in some cases word translation can be tricky.

Thanks for this awesome repository. I learnt a lot doing these problems and found myself stuck in some places. The answers from fellow members helped narrow down my errors! Yay!
