The youngest child is 8 years old. The middle child is the youngest child+4 or, 8+4 which makes that child 12 years old. The oldest child is the middle child+8 or, 12+8, making the oldest 18 years old. Carol is all of the childrens ages combined plus 12 or, 8+12+18+12=50. Carol is 50 years old. Hope this helped :)
