This was given to my 9 year old brother in school, and I have to admit I am having trouble.

THE ANCIENT CASTLE SCENARIO

> The castle walls are 100 years older than the church.

> When the church was 250 years old a new tower was built.

> 50 years before the tower was built, a moat was dug around the castle.

> Today, the tower is exactly half as old as the castle walls.

How long has the moat been there?

To help you get the answer, work out these answers in the correct order:

1) How many years are the walls older than the tower?

2) How old are the walls and the tower?

You should also be able to work out what year.....

1) The castle was built

2) The tower was built

3) The church was built

THE END

Very annoying indeed and if someone can come up with an answer, there will be muchass respectos

:ok:
