Four-fifths of my current age is greater than three-quarters of my age one year from now.

Four-fifths of my current age is also greater than five-sixths of my age two years ago.

Given that my age is an integer, what are all possible values for my age? Explain how you determined your answer, showing all steps along the way.

Um... CPhill answered this question a couple of years ago, if you want to see the answer.

Let A  be your current age

 

(4/5)A  >  (3/4) (A + 1)

 

(4/5)A - (3/4)A  > 3/4

 

(1/20)A  > 3/4

 

A > (3/4)(20)

 

A >  15

 

And

 

(4/5)A  >  (5/6) (A - 2)

 

(4/5)A  >  (5/6)A  - 5/3

 

5/3  >  (5/6)A - (4/5)A

 

5/3  >  (1/30)A

 

(5/3) ( 30)  > A

 

50  > A

 

15  < A  < 50    where A is an integer
