The Math

I'm terrible at math. I was pretty good at Humanities at school. I already wrote here that my son is in the first grade. Yesterday, when I went home after work, he said,"Daddy, I'm doing my homework, but I can't get a mathematics task". "Don't worry, I'll help you", I said. I read the task in his exercise book and mused. I've been trying to solve the task for about 10 minutes. I took a pen and paper. I tried over and over again. But I couldn't do that. Then I called to my wife. She went to the theatre with her colleagues yesterday. I knew that the play started very soon. I read to her the conditions of the task by phone. As soon as I read the latest word, she said the decision of the task. She has a degree in mathematics. Today, I have lunch with my colleagues. I had remembered this story and asked them that task. One of them has a degree in philosophy. He couldn't solve a task for the first grade, like me.The other one went to school with advanced study of mathematics. He wrote down the task to his cellphone and solved it in about 7 minutes. We came back to office and ask that task two colleagues yet. They couldn't solve it. Here that task. We have cat, a dog and a parrot.Their total age is 9 years. The total age of the cat and the dog is 6 years.The total age of the cat and the parrot is 7 years. How old is the cat, the dog and the parrot? Good luck!

Today, I haved lunch with my colleagues.

I had remembered this story and asked them to solve that task.

LikHe me, he couldn't solve a task for the first grade, like me.

The other one went to school wiand sthudied advanced study of mathematics.

He wrote down the task ton his cellphone and solved it in about 7 minutes.

We wcament back to the office and asked that task two more colleagues yethat task.

I was pretty good at humanities at school.

Yesterday, when I went home after work, he said,"Daddy, I'm doing my homework, but I can't do a mathematics task/question/problem."

"Don't worry, I'll help you," I said.

(I've been trying) / I tried to solve the task for about 10 minutes.

Your sentence is grammatically correct but it means you are still trying.

But I couldn't do it.

Then I called to my wife.

I read the conditions of the task to her by phone.

correct but more natural variant

As soon as I read the latest word, she said the answer to the task.

Today, I had lunch with my colleagues.

I had remembered this story and asked them to solve that task.

The other one went to school and studied advanced mathematics.

He wrote down the task on his cellphone and solved it in about 7 minutes.

We went back to the office and asked two more colleagues to solve that task.
