The sum of the age of Nonte and Fonte is $25$ and the sum of the age of Nut and Boltu is $40$ . If Nut is at least $2$ years elder than Nonte then Boltu is at least how many years elder then Fonte?

How can this be 22? I think this should be 13!

Cuz..

If nonte+fonte=25

or, nonte=25-fonte.........................(1)

and nut+boltu=40...........................(2)

Here, nut=nonte+2 [at least]

So, So, equation 2 stands,

nut+boltu=40

or, nonte+2+boltu=40

or, 25-fonte+2+boltu=40

or, boltu=fonte+13

Which means boltu has to be older than fonte by 13 years..

Correct me if I am wrong!

There cannot be two **at least** phrases in the problem to have a meaningful answer to it. One of these should be at least while the other **at best**.
