solve this problem by making a tree...as the lady s age is the sum of his sons and grand sons and the range is 50-70 so the answer which fits in is 7 that way lady's age is 7*8=56

let the number of sons she has be x.

Each son has x-1 brothers.Each son has x-1 sons.

the number of sons and grand sons=x+((x*(x-1)).This is equal to the age of the woman.The age is between 50-70 is given.

x+x^2-x=p--->x^2=p------>where p is the age of the woman.

there is only one perfect square number between 50-70.so the number is 64.

age is 64
