(5) How many months old was Bincy on 2 August 2002? ____________
(6) How many years old is Bincy now? ___________
(7) After how many months of her birth was the certificate issued?
(8) What is the registration number of her certificate? __________
Solution:
(1)
2/5/2002 shows that Bincy was born on 2 May, in the year 2002.
(2)
Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002.
From 2 May, 2002 to 1 May, 2003, her age will be 1 year
From 2 May, 2003 to 1 May, 2004, her age will be 2 years
Similarly, from 2 May, 2002 to 1 May, 2008, her age will 6 years (2008 − 2002)
Thus, she will be 6 years old on 2 May, 2008.
(3)
She was born in the year 2008.
Her age in 2052 will be 44 years (2052 − 2008 = 44)
So, Bincy will be 44 years old in 2052.
(4)
Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002.
Year in which she will be 8 years old = 2002 + 8
= 2010
So, on date 2/5/2010, she will be 8 years old.
(5)
From May to June, she will be 1 month old.
From June to July, she will be 2 months old.
From July to August, she will b 3 months old.
So, Bincy will be 3 months old in August 2002.
(6)
At present, the year is 2014 and her birth year was 2002.
So, her age in 2014 = 2014 $$ 2002
= 12 years
She is 12 years old in the year 2014.
(7)
Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002 and the birth certificate was issued on 5 August, 2002.
Now, May is the 5th month of the year and August is the 8th month of the year.
So, the number of months after her birth when her certificate was issued = (8 $$ 5) months
= 3
(8)
Registration number of her certificate is 815/02
