Answer Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicate…d, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

In 7 years Deac will be be twice as old as Irina Four years ago he was three times as old as Irina was then How old are each of them now?
Problems like this are straightforward to solve, once you'vetranslated the information supplied into equations . So: Let Deac and Irina be respectively A and B years old. From the first bit: A + 7 = 2(B+7) Tidy this up: A + 7 = 2B + 14,and A - 2B = 7 From the second bit: A - 4 = 3(B-4), A - 4 = 3…B - 12, and 3B - A= 8 We have to solve the two equations in bold simultaneously, which inthis case is nice and easy. Simply adding the two equationstogether eliminates A: [A - 2B] + (3B - A) =  + (8) so B = 15Having found B, we look back to a previous equation... A - 2B = 7,A - 30 = 7, A = 37 ...to find A. So, Deac is 37 and Irina is 15. ( Full Answer )

Because he was hoping to convey Biblical gravitas. Incidentally, he wrote that speech in a hurry, and was most dissatisfied with it.
Four score and seven=87 87 years prior to the Gettysburg address, was the American Revolution.
It referred back to the Declaration of Independence, and it was deliberately couched in somewhat Biblical terms, to indicate sanctity and gravitas.
Literally, "four twenties and seven years ago," or "87 years ago." A score is 20. Four score is 80, and 7 is 87. So four score and seven years ago means 87 years ago. (see "Wikipedia"; "Gettysburg Address". 1863 minus 87=1776; 4th July - Declaration of Independence!) "Fourscore" means eighty (…80). A score is twenty. It's not in very common use any more, but it is a word like "dozen," which means twelve (12)--a special word for a certain number. (And a gross is 12 x 12, or 144.) So if a score = 20, fourscore = 4 x 20 = 80. And 7 makes 87. 1 score = 20 years 4 score = 80 years 4 score 7 years = 87 years ( Full Answer )
