amounted to one hundred years, and the united ages of the Simkins also

sum obtained by adding the squares of each of the children's ages to the
square of the mother's age equalled the square of the father's age. In

brother Joe, whereas Sophy Simkin was two years older than her brother
Sammy. What was the age of each of the eight individuals?
