Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Robin, a parent:

Sean is 4 months older than Tony. Mia is 6 months younger than Tony. If Mia's birthday is in April when is Sean's?

Try working backwards. When is Tony's birthday?
Now can you find Sean's?

Alternatively, start by asking

"how much older is Sean than Mia?"

Good Hunting!
