Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Rosa is 10.  further This is calculated by working out the relationship between the children. Let's call Rosa "R" and let that stand for her age. The next child is R + 2 years old and the eldest if R + 4. We are told that R + (R + 2) + (R + 4) = 36 (add the Rs and the digits on the left) R + R + R + 2 + 4 = 36 3R + 6 = 36 (subtract 6 from both sides) 3R = 36  6 3R = 30 (divide both sides by 3) R = 10
