[edit] Hints

Hint One
    "When you've got a puzzle like this one, what you wanna do is go over all the info you've got and find the stuff you can use. The difference between my parents' ages probably won't help you. But...my sister's age could be kinda useful."

Hint Two
    "My sister is twice my age. Oh, and in five years, I'll be the same age as my sister."

Hint Three
    "Read Hint Two REALLY CAREFULLY, OK?

    "Five years ago, my sis was the same age as I am now, and she's now twice my age."

[edit] When Failed


A grown-up like you should be able to work this one out!

[edit] When Completed

"Hey, not bad!

"Papa's 35 and Mama's 30, meaning the difference in their ages is the same as my age, like I said.

"As for my big sis, she's 10. That's twice my age and a third of Mama's. In five years, I'll be 10 and my sister will be 15. Can you believe it? I'll practically be a grown-up by then!"

[edit] Solution


Joanie is five years old.

[edit] Progress

1740 Picarats and 118 Hint Coins.
