1510.22 – Pebble's Long Life
Pebble lived one twelfth of his life as a small child and one sixth more as a young adult. He then married Bloomie and lived happily for one seventh of his life plus five years. They then had a son, Nelius, who, sadly, Pebble outlived by four years. Nelius lived to be half of Pebble’s final age. How old was Pebble when he died?
Suppose Pebble lived years. Then Nelius lived years. To find Pebble’s final age, simply add the given bits together and perform some basic algebra.
