The Monkey Problem

Hello. I know this is very random because I haven't blogged for a few months back.
Anyhow, I'm just entice by this problem and this has made me to post it on my blog.
Solve it people :)

".......A rope is put over a pulley with a weight on one end and a Monkey on the other. The whole maintains an equilibrium with as much rope on one side as the other. The Monkey weighs as many pounds as the Monkey's mother is years old and the combined ages of the Monkey and the Monkey's mother is 4 years. The rope is as many feet in length as it is pounds in weight...

....Now, the Monkey's mother is twice as old as the Money was, when the Monkey's mother was half as old as the Monkey will be when the Monkey is three times as old as the Monkey's mother was, when the Monkey's mother was three times as old as the Monkey.....

.....The weight of the weight and the weight of the rope is half as much again as the difference between the weight of the weight plus the weight of the rope and the weight of the Monkey...."

WHAT IS THE LENGTH OF THE ROPE??????
