Remember NO googling or searching the Internet allowed and good luck!!!!!!!!!
Daniel, my son, is exactly one fifth of my age. In 21 years time, I will be exactly twice his age. My wife is exactly seven times older than my daughter, Jessica. In 8 years time, my wife will be three times older then Jessica. How old are Daniel and Jessica now?

Got it??
I used trial and error!
Daniel is 7 so parent 35 now. 7 plus 21 equals 28. 28 times 2 equals 56. 35 plus 21 equals 56.
Jessica is 4 so parent 28 now. 4 plus 8 equals 12. 12 times 3 equals 36. 28 plus 8 equals 36.
My daughter the Math Major blew it using her formulas and I got the answer.
Never underestimate the power of a math idiot like me!!
Have Fun
