Math was never my strong suit. I can do simple stuff like 40%off and anything dealing with money. I do that well But when it comes to algebra, calculus and the likes I have no idea how to solve those problems.

Here'* some more fun for ya guys. lol

"How old am I? My age is a perfect square number of years greater than a perfect square number; it is also a perfect square number of years less than a perfect square. Next year, my age will be a prime number less than 50.

I compiled a list of perfect squares: 1 4 16 25 36 49
and prime #'*: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47

I think I got the answer. They are currently 40 years old.

40-36=4
40+9=49. 40+1 is 41, which is a prime number. yay.
