Twice her age?
« on: August 02, 2019, 03:16:14 PM »
My daughter is five years old.

My niece is ten years old.

That makes my niece twice my daughter's age.

Why isn't my niece 20 years old when my my daughter becomes 10 years old?

You never said your niece has to be the same niece.  :D

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

There's only one niece and one daughter in this situation.

Daughter = Niece - 5

10=N-5
10+5=N
N=15

Same goes for:

My daughter is one year old.

My niece is two years old.

That makes my niece twice my daughter's age.

Why isn't my niece 10 years old when my daughter becomes 5 years old?

 ;D ;)

Because your niece leaped ahead to the age of 21 that day and is out drinking at the bars.  O0
