oh, yeah and if any of you were wondering, the answer to my question is this

If in 6 years the mother will be 21 years older than and 5 times as old as the child, then:
5*(X+6) = (X+6)+21
4*(X+6) = 21
X+6 = 5.25
X = -0.75

So, at present the child is three quarters of a year shy of being born.
Three quarters of a year is nine months.
So asumming a "perfect" nine month pregancy? Well I think you Now knwo exaxtly where daddy is :) (hint hint: very close to mommy)
