Nancy asks…

age of the father and son?

the sum of the present ages of a father and his son is 80years.When the father’s age was equal to the present age of the son,the sum of their ages was 40 years.Find the present ages.

Appreciated for the solutions

vti answers:

Let the age of the son now be S
Let the difference in ages (constant) be D
Thus always,
(age of father) = (age of son) + D
(age of son) = (age of father) – D

At present
(age of father) + (age of son) = 80
(S + D) + (S) = 80
2S + D = 80 ………………(i)

When the father’s age was equal to the present age of the son
(age of father) + (age of son) = 40
(S) + (S – D) = 40 <———————————– key line
2S – D = 40 …………. (ii)

adding (i) and (ii)
4S = 120
S = 30

From sum of ages = 80, father's age is 50
[ie D = 20]

Son 30, father 50.

Note: Other answers haven't accounted that when the father was the current age of the son (30), the son was a different age too (10).

David asks…

The sum of Noras age and her grandmas age is 71. 4 times Noras age is 6 less than her grandmothers age. Find?

find their ages

vti answers:

Let’s say Nora’s age is “n” and her grandma’s age is “g”.
Just translate the problem:
the sum of nora’s age and her grandma’s age is 71 translates to n + g = 71.
4 times Nora’s age is 6 less than her grandma’s age translates to 4n = g – 6.
Remember, “is” means =.

So now, you solve the simulaneous equations.
N + g = 71
4n = g – 6

from the first equation, we can say that n = 71 – g
now, we substitute that into the 2nd.
4(71-g) = g – 6
284 – 4g = g – 6
290 = 5g
g = 58
so her grandma’s age is 58. To find nora’s age, you can substitute g = 58 into one of the 2 equations.
Let’s do it in the first.
N + 58 = 71
n = 13
so, Nora is 13.
To check, you can add nora’s age and her grandma’s age 13 + 58 equals 71, so the first criteria fits.
4 times nora’s age is 6 less than her grandma’s age is 4*13= 52; 6 less than her grandma’s age [58] is 58 – 6 = 52, so it’s right.

Good luck! =]

Sharon asks…

How did the ice age occur?

What created the ice age.
Don’t use wikipedia.

vti answers:

An ice age is a period of long-term reduction in the temperature of Earth’s climate, resulting in an expansion of the continental ice sheets, polar ice sheets and mountain glaciers. Glaciologically, ice age is often used to mean a period of ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres; by this definition we are still in an ice age (because the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets still exist). More colloquially, when speaking of the last few million years, ice age is used to refer to colder periods with extensive ice sheets over the North American and Eurasian continents: in this sense, the most recent ice age ended about 10,000 years ago. This article will use the term ice age in the former, glaciological, sense; glacials for colder periods during ice ages; and interglacials for the warmer periods.

William asks…

what are these ages mean? and examples?

– Golden Age
– Age of Faith
– Age of Feudalism
– Dark Ages

For example, Catholic Church with Gothic Style belongs to which ages? Magna Carta? Exsistence of God vs human?

vti answers:

First of all, there is no such thing as the Age of Feudalism. In fact, there is no such thing as feudalism period. It is a historical construct that has been ill defined and does not represent the realities of the Middle Ages. The term is no longer used by Medieval historians and it has been that way for 30 years.

This brings us to my next criticism. The Dark Ages. Medieval Europe was not “dark” in any ways. It only got that name because some Renaissance scholars had a crush on Antiquity and viewed the Europe of their parents and Grandparents as backward. The term has also been banished by historians, therefore it should not be used.

Age of Faith could be applicable to many eras: Medieval, Renaissance, Antiquity. It is too broad.

The only real age mentioned above that can be explained is the Golden Age. That too is a very broad term because there has been a Golden Age for almost anything. However, the one that I think you might be referring to is Plato’s and Socrates’ Golden Age. It would be referring to the Bronze Age where there were heroes and stuff (like those who fought at Troy). The Bronze Age society collapsed and there was a historical void where little writing was produced (compared to prior to the collapse). When the Iron Age came about, the societies were looking at gigantic structures that what been abandoned. The ancient concluded that someone greater than them had built them and they called it a Golden Age.

George asks…

Gestational Age is…..?

If gestational age of a fetus is 5 weeks… then what is the actual fetal age??? I am just wondering.

vti answers:

Alright gestational age counts from the first day of the last period. Conception occurs (usually) roughly during ovulation; two weeks or 14 days after the first day of the last period.

So if you are 5 weeks pregnant the fetal age is 3 weeks. All you do is subtract 2 weeks from the gestational age. Ex. Gestational age=15 weeks, fetal age= 13 weeks.
