In a group of five friends, the sums of the ages of each group of four of them are 124, 128, 130, 136, and 142. What is the age of the youngest?

[142 - 136] / 4  + [142 - 130] /4 + [142 - 128] / 4  + [142 - 124] / 4 =1.5 + 3 + 3.5 + 4.5 = 12.5 years difference between the average of oldest and the youngest.

142 / 4 =35.5 years the average of the oldest 4

35.5 - 12.5 = 23 years - the youngest.
