I am 2/3 the age of my brother, he is three times younger than my dad. Mum is five years younger than dad. If dad is 54, how old is my brother, my mum and me?

If mum is 5 years younger than dad, and dad is 54, then

mum= 54 - 5 = 49

brother is 3 times younger than dad, so

brother = 1/3(54) = 18

you are 2/3 the age of your brother, so

you = 2/3(18) = 12
