If Jean is 40, then John is 20 because he is half as Jean's age (40/2), and because John is 20, Bob is 10 since he is twice as old as Bob (20/2). Therefore, Jean is the eldest of the three.
Hope this helps.

### The sum of ages of marian, diana and carlos are 17. Two years from now marian will twice as old as diana. if carlos is half as old as marian four years from now. How ald are they now ? Pls show the...

Let m be Marian's age, d Diana's age and c Carlos age.
• sum of ages is 17: m+d+c=17
• two years from now Marian will be twice as old as Diana: m+2=2*(d+2) so m+2=2d+4 so 2d=m-2 or d=(m-2)/2=m/2-1
• Carlos will be half as old as Marian 4 years from now: c+4=1/2(m+4) or c+4=m/2+2 or c=m/2-2
• now: m+d+c=m+m/2-1+m/2-2=17
• 2m=17+3=20
• m=20/2=10 years
• d=m/2-1=5-1=4 years
• c=m/2-2=5-2=3 years
Marian is 10 years old, Diana 4 years old and Carlos is 3 years old.

I hope I helped :)

### Bob was thrice as old as peter. Six years ago he was 4 times as old as peter . Find their ages now?

Correction: Bob is thrice as old as Peter.
Let b be the current age of Bob, and p the current age of Peter. Now, b=3p
Six years earlier the relations was: b-6=4*(p-6)=4p-24.
Take the 6 to the right side leaving b=4p-18
Remember that now b=3p. Use it in the equation above
b=(3p)=4p-18, This becomes 3p=4p-18 or 0=p-18, and p=18
Peter is 18 years old, and Bob is 3*18=54 years old.
Verification: 6 years ago Peter was 12 years old and Bob 48 years old. 48/12=4.

### There are dishes that need to be rinsed. John can rinse them in minutes by himself. It will take his friend Bob minutes to rinse these dishes. How long will it take them if they rinse these dishes...

This problem is a bit ambiguous.
If John rinses in minutes, as well as Bob, then it will take them less than minutes (say seconds) to rinse these dishes if they do this together. A concrete answer would be that, as they double the work done, then it should take them half the time to deal with it.
Good Luck!

### Our LN40A630 has three horizontal white lines across the screen on power up (center, center of upper half , and center of lower half). After about five minutes the lines go away. Tried Picture Test in...

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.
