Eight years ago, Verizon Wireless was half as old as Sprint will be when Sprint is one year older that AT&T will be five times as old as AT&T will be two years from now.

Ten years from now AT&T will be twice as old as Sprint was when Verizon Wireless was nine times as old as AT&T

When AT&T was one year old, Verizon Wireless was three years older than AT&T will be when Sprint is three years older than AT&T will be when Sprint is there times as old as Verizon Wireless was six years before the time when Sprint was half as old as AT&T will be when Verizon Wireless will be ten years older than Verizon Wireless was when Sprint was one-third as old as AT&T will be when Verizon Wireless will be three times as old as it was when Sprint was born.

How old are they now?

Wondering what happened to the spoiler tag in previous post, and why I can't edit it to fix. :o

Thanks. I must have deleted the end tag on an edit.
For me, maybe you should disable after zero minutes... ;)

mgrannis -- will we get the solution?

Or was this a drive-by puzzling? ;)
