Well, let the aunt's age be x. Then the uncle's age is x+3, and we have that \[x(x+3) = 3190\] \[x^2 + 3x -3190 = 0\] \[x=\frac{-3 \pm \sqrt{9+4(3190)}}{2}\] \[x = \frac{-3 \pm 112.96017}{2}\] At this point note that the age of the aunt cannot be negative, so disregard the negative solution and keep the positive: \[x = 54.98008\] and this is the aunt's age. The uncle is 57.98008
