• New Zealand to Tahiti. I was curious to look around the ship one day and in the boiler room I asked a man how old the ship was. He smiled and replied me in this way: ‘The ship is twice as old as its boiler was when the ship was as old as the boiler is now. And the combined age of the ship and the boiler is thirty years.’
Can you figure out what is the age of the ship and of the boiler?

• Some months back, this year, I was walking through the Central Park in New York.
I saw an intelligent looking little boy playing all by himself on the grass. I decided to talk to him and just as an excuse to start the conversation I asked him his age. A mischivious glint flickered in his eyes and he replied, ‘Two days back I was ten years old, and next year I shall be thirteen. If you know what’s today you’ll be able to figure out my birthday and that’ll give you my age.’ I looked at him bewildered. How old was the boy?
