I calculate 49.

She gave 5/7 of her age. 35/(5/7)=49.

If her current age is exactly 35 ignoring the intervening Saturdays and the Sundays. The solution would be:

2 X 52.177457 X 35 % 365.242199 = 10 years. So 35 years + 10 = Her total age is exactly 45.

2 x 52.177457 = 104.354914

104.354914 X 35 = 3652.42199

3652.42199 % 365.242199 = 10

Let X = her actual age.

There are 260.7 week days in a year ( 365/7 = 52.14 and 52.14 * 5 = 260.7 )

So...

35 is to X as 260.7 is to 365

35/X = 260.7/365

Solving for X by cross multiplying

260.7X = 35 * 365

260.7X = 12,775

X = 49.00

The answer is almost exactly 49 as Prime posted earlier ( 35 divided by 5/7 ) and not 45 ( (35 * 2/7) + 35 ).
