Problems 02/27/20

Problem 1:
This year February 29 occurs on Saturday. Which year will February 29 again occur on a Saturday?

Problem 2:
Tom asked his Granny how old she was. Rather than giving him a straight answer, she replied: "I have 6 children, and there are 4 years between each one and the next. I had my first child (your Uncle Peter) when I was 19. Now the youngest one (Your Auntie Jane) is 19 herself. That's all I'm telling you!"

How old is Tom's Granny?


Congratulation to Nilesh Agrawal, who was the winner of the last set of puzzles.
