    Are you sure that you have provided correct information?

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The prime decomposition of 2540 is 2 * 2 * 5 * 127. That leads to possible ages for the women that would cause me to delete this thread immediately!</span hide>

    Reg

    I was in the pub the other day and overheard a conversation between the bartender and a gentleman drinker. The bartender said "Well it appears old Reg has been up to his old tricks again. I hear he was visited by three women today [ Can you work out how old they are, if you know the product of there ages is <font color=red>2450</font color=red> and that together they are as old as you are?"

    The gentleman pottered off for a little while then came back and said to the bartender "No I can't"

    The bartender said "Of course you can't, but if I tell you that the oldest woman is older than Reg, you will be able to."


    How old is Reg?
