To determine your age if born in 1936:

1) If your birthday has not yet arrived, subtract 1 from the current year, and then subtract "1936". The answer will be your current age.

Example: 2012 - 1 = 2011

2011 - 1936 = 75 years old (until your birthday arrives)

2) If it is past your birthday, simply take the current year and subtract "1936" to find your age at that time.

Example: 2012 - 1936 = 76 years old

If you were born in 1936 you would be 76 sometime during the year - unless you were born on February the 29 th.....

.

....then as1936 was a leap year you would only be 19!

You would be turning 76 at some point during 2012, this may have already happened as we are almost half way through 2012. There is almost a 50% chance that you are already 76.

...'Somewhat' old. To someone of that age, I would use an expression such as 'well into adulthood'.
