    Lucy and Lory are sisters. They are special. They usually tell the truth in all cases, but when recalling something her sister has said, then they twist it a little bit.

    For instance, when referring to something Lory had said, Lucy always says quite the contrary: "Lucy, look, the sky is beautiful." "Did you say the sky is ugly?".

    In Lory's case, when referring so something Lucy said, She always doubles any quantity that appears in the sentence: " Hey, Lory, I found two flowers." "Mom, Lucy says she found four flowers".

    Some day they were talking about a friend of theirs and mom came by. She heard this:

    - As you say, Jorge is the younger brother.

    - But you said his brother was 20 years younger.

    - No, it was you who said that his brother was three times Jorge's age.

    - Well, that is not important. The important thing is that, as you said, Jorge is 30 years old.

    What are Jorge's and his brother's ages?
