The vicar and the bell ringer
|

This little puzzle was suggested by one of my readers. It is simple enough and I am sure that every one will quickly solve it.

The vicar said to the bellringer, "There are three members of my congregation, the product of whose ages is 2450. The sum of their ages is twice yours. Can you tell me their ages ?"

The bell-ringer thinks and says, "I haven't sufficient information."

The vicar replies: "It will suffice to say that I am older than any of you.

The bell-ringer then stated the three ages. What were they, along with with that of the vicar.
