HELP! ``` Suppose he lived to be N years old. From his birth until the end of his youth was N/6 years From the end of his youth until he grew his first beard was N/12 years. From the time he shaved off his first beard till he got married was N/7 years. From the time he got married until his son was born was 5 years. From the time his son was born until his son died was N/2 years From the time his son died until he died was 4 years. All that adds up to N Multiply through by the LCD = 84 He lived 84 years. Edwin```
