If the oldest individual in an office is 57 and the range of employee ages is 29, what is the age of the youngest person in the office?

Can someone help me get this started?

• Math -

The range is the difference of the extreme values.
In the particular example, the range is the difference between the oldest and the youngest persons.
Can you work with that?

• Math -

57-x=29
x=57-29
x=29+-57
x=28

Did I do that right?

• Math -

Yes. The youngest person is 28.

Thank you!

57=29^x...solve for x
