A woman was having some trouble with her heart, so she

went to see the doctor. He was a new doctor, and did not know

her, so he first asked some questions, and one of them was,

'How old are you?'

'Well,' she answered, 'I don't remember, doctor, but I

will try to think.' She thought for a minute and then said,

'Yes, I remember now, doctor! When I married, I was

eighteen years old, and my husband was thirty. Now my

husband is sixty, I know; and that is twice thirty. So I am

twice eighteen. That is thirty-six, isn't it?'

Where did the woman in this story go ?

Why did she go there ?

Why did the doctor not know her ?

What did he do first ?

What was one of his questions ?

What did the woman answer ?

What did she do then ?

What did she say after that ?

How old was the woman really ?
