In what year was Ellen born?

(1) Ellen's brother Pete, who is 1+(1/2) years older than Ellen, was born in 1956
(2) In 1975 Ellen turned 18 years old.

I know this is a piece of cake for most of you guys, but I don't agree with the answer given in the answer sheet. I figure such answer is incorrect, but I want to make sure I am not missing something...

Tell me what you think

1) Ellen could have been born in 57 or 58, depending on what month of 56 Pete was born in.
2) Doesn't matter what month Ellen was born in, she turned 18 in 75 so she that tells you she was born in 57.

What does the answer sheet say?
