There is something wrong with the information in the question. Check out a similar question at http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.07/h/george2.html Hope this helps,
Todd, If they are each 10 years old, then the sum of their ages is 20 years. You’re looking for two numbers, both smaller than 10, that differ by 5 Good luck!
