4C + 13 < 30

4C < 17

The largest c can be is 4.

Technically, what you said is correct. their total age could be 4 different numbers, based on whatever c is. I would say that this question is poorly phrased, it should be “what could their oldest total age be?”

In this case, I would still have put 75, because the closest number to the limit (4c <17) would be 4c = 16.
