    To Ch.c, Compliments from a freshman at I.T.A (Instituto Technologico da Aeronautica) Sao Paulo Brazil.
    A Conundrum to a smart Swiss:
    Dear Ch.c,
    I was told that you are a very smart manÀ¢€¦ much smarter than the inferior non-Swiss monkeys inhabitants of the south hemisphere. So please help me to solve this mathematical conundrum that lets say you are directly involved with.
    The Problem: (Your problem)
    Your wife is 21 years older than your daughter.
    In 6 years from now your wifeˢ۪s age will be 5 times greater than the age of your daughter.
    The question for you Mr. Ch.c is WHERE WERE YOU MR. Ch.c ???
    If I may Mr. Ch.c, this is how the monkeys you are referring at the I.T.A., mathematically Solved Your Problem.
    Solution:
    Analytical Analysis Today:
    Your wife is À¢€œYÀ¢€Â years old today.
    Your Daughter À¢€œxÀ¢€Â years old today
    Therefore with your wife 21 years older:——————- Y=X 21
    In 6 years from now:——————————————(Y 6) and (x 6)
    So with your wife 5 times the age of your daughte:——-Y 6 = 5 (X 6)
    Solving your problem Mr.Ch.c :
    Y 6 = 5 X 30
    Y = 5X 24
    Substituting for the first equation: Y = X 21
    You will have:
    5X 24 = X 21
    So Mr.Ch.c:
    – 4X = 3
    X = -3/4
    So then your Daughter age today is (-3/4) years, or (À¢€“9) months.
    Mr.Ch.c the logical explanation is that:
    If your Daughter is minus 9 months today and she will be born in nine months, that means she is being conceived today and we know that you are in the computer bashing brazil right now, hence Mr. Ch.c. unfortunately for you and fortunately for your daughterÀ¢€¦YOU CAN NOT BE THE FATHER.

    Wrong conclusion and wrong stats !!!!
    Your furniture exports grew in USD because the currency was weak but in Reais you exports growth is much much much LOWER !!!!!!

    And your sector trade balance is not that great….for a country with a population of 185 million.

    Your overall exports were around US$ 150 billion, OR LESS THAN USD 1000.- per capita.

    It happens that your overall exports are NOT LARGER THAN SWITZERLAND, a country with a population of 7,5 millions…..meaning
    25 times SMALLER than Brazil !!!!!

    It also means that on a per capita, Switzerland exports 25 TIMES more than Brazil !!!!!

    Keep working hard, you still have a long way to go, before even coming closer !
