"vozrast" in Russian


Explanation:
The problem is rather stupid. If mather's age is Y and monkey's X, then you rather quickly derive the equation

Y=X*3/2.

Well, if the fertil age of a monkey is 1 year, you might solve the equation and get the result. But, for instance, if the fertil age is, eg,
between 3 and 4 you cannot get an integer answer.

Please ask you math techer in school about this problem. This site is rather different...

Возраст.


Explanation:
Матери павиана сейчас в два раза меньше лет, чем будет ему, когда его возраст будет в три раза больше, чем возраст его матери в момент, когда ей было вдвое меньше лет, чем павиану, когда он будет вдвое старше, чем сейчас.

There are two genders for animal in Russian, masculine and feminine, word "monkey" (обезьяна) is feminine in Russian, so I put instead of monkey just a kind of one, that has masculine gender, baboon (павиан), for example, to lighten the endless row.
