The answer would be 40 years old. Using the given information that 1/2 of your life is spent as a working person, we know that 1/2(x) = 20. Solving this equation by multiplying both sides by 2, we get 40 years old. The other information given is extra, though fits with the idea that 1/8(40) = 5 years before starting school and ages 5-20 for schooling.
