  1. Since her year of birth must be divisible by both 23 and 17, it must be divisible by 391, (23 x 17)
    Since she is less than 100 she must have been born in the 19hundreds.

    So her birth year must be a multiple of 361, it is easy to just try a few multipliers by 361 and I got 1955 = 5*391

    Notice that 1955 is only divisible by the primes 5,17, and 23

    So if she was born in 1955, then in 2007 she would be 52
