## Homework Statement

I need a rock solid proof.

Is it possible to be half someones age more than once?

Eg. I was born at 0 while my dad was born at 20, he will be 40 when I am 20 hence I am half his age. Is this possible more than once?

The difference in your ages is fixed. Use that constant to show that the fraction only ever decreases.

(Quibble: in your example, if I die when I'm 30, will I again be half my Dad's age when he turns 60?)

You have two ages, which can be represented by functions which are linear in time, what do you know about the solutions to systems of linear equations?

## 1. Can someone be half another person's age more than once?

Yes, it is possible for someone to be half another person's age more than once. This occurs when the age of the younger person is exactly half the age of the older person, and then the age difference between them increases.

## 2. How does being half someone's age more than once affect their relationship?

The effect of being half someone's age more than once on their relationship can vary. Some people may feel uncomfortable with a significant age gap, while others may not be bothered by it. It ultimately depends on the individuals involved and their personal beliefs and values.

## 3. Is it common for someone to be half another person's age more than once?

No, it is not common for someone to be half another person's age more than once. This is because as people age, the age difference between them typically decreases as well. However, it is not unusual for there to be a significant age gap in a relationship.

## 4. Can being half someone's age more than once affect their physical and mental health?

There is no direct correlation between being half someone's age more than once and their physical or mental health. However, it is important for individuals in a relationship with a significant age gap to be aware of potential challenges and to communicate openly about any concerns they may have.

## 5. Are there any legal implications for being half someone's age more than once?

In most countries, there are no legal implications for being half someone's age more than once. However, in some places, there may be laws restricting relationships with significant age gaps, particularly if one person is a minor. It is important to research and understand the laws in your specific location.
