    Mum is 21 year older than her son. After 6 years she will be 5 times older than her son. Where is dad?

    Son's age - x
    mum's age - x + 21
    son's age after 6 years - x + 6
    mum's age after 6 years - 5(x + 6)

    5(x + 6) = x + 21 + 6
    5x + 30 = x + 27
    4x = -3
    x = -3/4

    -3/4 years = -9 months which leads us to the solution that dad is on mum.

    Driving home from the sperm bank, hoping the donation was truly anonymous.

    No, that renders them inert.
