### The Age Old Problem

Hi all,

The Combined ages of Reena and Seena are 44 years and Reena is twice as old as Seena was when Reena was half as old as Seena will be when Seena is three times as old as Reena was when Reena was three times as old as Seena?

How old is Reena and Seena?

P.S : The Question is Proper and there is no mistake in it.

Thanks

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi all,

Here is another that's similar, based on a puzzle I've had for years that had different character names but was otherwise the same as the Reena and Seena puzzle.
