Child's age = C Mother's age = M = C + 26

(C+3) (M+3) = 360

(C+3) (C+29) = 360 => C² + 32 C - 273 = 0

C = (-32 +- 46) / 2 = 7 years

M = 33 years

(C+3) (M+3) = 360

(C+3) (C+29) = 360 => C² + 32 C - 273 = 0

C = (-32 +- 46) / 2 = 7 years

M = 33 years

The child is 26 years younger than the mother.
