i recently sat a national mathematics competition and came across this question, which i thought was pretty good. im posting it here to see how long it takes everybody to figure out. (the question has been wordedly differently)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The sum of three children's ages is 23. The product of their ages is 113 more than the product of their ages this time last year. What is the sum of the squares of the children's ages? (easy after you figure out their ages)

enjoy...
