Problem 1

Jean is shorter than Brutus, but taller than Imhotep.
Imhotep is taller than Jean, but shorter than Lord Scotland.
Lord Scotland is twice the height of Jean and Brutus combined, but only a tenth of the height of Millsy.
Millsy is at a constant height of x-y.

If Jean stands exactly one nautical mile away from Lord Scotland, how tall is Imhotep?

How can Jean be taller than Imhotep but Imhotep be taller than Jean?
