1. This Christmas, your brother Jack will be 2 years from being twice as old as your sister Jen. The sum of Jack’s age and three times Jen’s age is 66. How old is Jen?

2. One of your friends is heading north for the Christmas holiday and the other friend is heading south. If their destinies are 1029 miles apart and one car is traveling at 45 miles per hour and the other car is traveling at 53 miles per hour. How many hours before the two cars pass each other?

3. This Christmas we decided to buy some sweets and give those sweets to the children in the orphanage. If we gave each child 8 sweets then we would have 30 sweets left. If we gave the child 12 sweets each then we would have needed to boy 30 sweets more. Find the number of children in the orphanage?

4. This Christmas, my parents gave us a lot of candy canes. They gave all of those candy canes to my elder sister to distribute it. She then took some and gave me 2/3 of all candy canes. I kept 1/3 of the candy canes I had and gave the rest to my little brother. My brother ate 1/4 of the candy canes he had and gave the last 12 to my parents. How many candy canes did my little brother eat?
