Jeanne Louise Calment of France lived to be the oldest human on record. Mitoyo Kawate of Japan lived 8 years less than Calment. If the sum of their ages is 236 years, how old was Calment when she died?

let: Jeanne's age be x Mitoyo's age be x-8 Since Jeanne's + Mitoyo's age = 236, x + x - 8 = 236 2x = 236 + 8 2x = 244 x = 244/2 x = 122
