Can you solve this Maths Question? Or will you struggle like her

If a big brother is 4-years-old, and his younger brother is half his age, how old will the little brother be when the big brother is 100-years-old.

Some people excel in Maths, while other struggle like this girl, who when asked a question (If a big brother is 4-years-old, and his younger brother is half his age, how old will the little brother be when the big brother is 100-years-old.) Struggles to answer it.


In the YouTube video posted below, she was asked the question: ‘If the big brother is four years old and the little brother is half of his age, how old would the little brother be when his big brother is 100?’

The girl answered 50 years old. sadly that was’nt the right answer.


It may have made sense if she’d been told that the little brother was half of his age when the big brother was 100.


After explaining the question again and again, the exhausted boyfriend had to give in and tell her the correct answer – and finally, things became a little clearer for the confused girl.

If you’ve avoided watching the video and can’t quite work out the answer yourselves – it’s 98.
