    It wasn't so much skipping classes, more like skipping the entire school!

    Never was good at algebra so no, I'm not going to try and guess. And Gab, if you were anything like my hubby, he used to play cards in the back of the classroom, no wonder he is better than me at maths.

    Our age difference must be f. I always knew you where f years older then me.

    7f-3g=-11
    11f+9g=161

    Where
    f=age difference
    g=?

    So my age is y-f
    :D

    Be natural. Never ever develop artificial character.

    Clever idea to remove the solution and send it as a PM instead. You got the correct answer :)

    Am I missing the point? I didn't know that writing one's age as a math equation equates artificial something ;)
