Word Problem Wednesday: Birthday Math

Aug 23, 2017 | Davis



How old are you?

If you know when your birthday is then you know your basic age, but do you know your more exact age? When is your half-birthday? (It’s the day of the year that is exactly 6 months from your birthday.) When is your quarter birthday? Or your three-quarter birthday? When you use math, EVERY DAY becomes a day to celebrate YOU! 

Use your super math skills to figure out the birthday-themed word problem challenge below, and check back tomorrow to compare your solution to ours. In the meantime, we’d like to wish you a... Happy Birthday! Or maybe... Happy HALF Birthday! Or QUARTER birthday! Or UN-birthday!! 

Word Problem Challenge: Peter’s birthdate is January 3, 1996. Hannah’s birthdate is October 30, 2008. How old will each of them be on August 25, 2017?
