  1. Peter died when he was 84. His adolescence lasted until he was 84/6=14. After 7 years (84/12), he started growing facial hair at age 21. He married Susanne 12 years later (84/7), at age 33. 5 years later he had his daughter, at age 38. She died 42 years later, when he was 80. He died 4 years later at age 84, which is twice as long as his daughter lived.
