Lauren has four children. Each child is precisely one year older than the next oldest one. Lauren notices that the sum of the ages of her four children totals her own age. How old is Lauren if she is five times the age of her youngest child?

x = youngest

x+1

x+2

x+3     the other three kidz

 

 

x    +    x+1  +    x+2   +   x+3      = Lauren's age        which is also    = 5x

 

4x  + 6 = 5x

x = 6  = youngest

 

Lauren = 5 * 6 = 30 y/o
