George and Martha are running a holiday camp and their four daughters are staying there. To keep the peace they have been given chalets in different areas. Amelia’s chalet number is between 1 and 99, Bertha’s is between 100 and 199, Caroline’s between 200 and 299, and Dorothy’s between 300 and 399.

George commented that the difference between any two of the four chalet numbers is either a square or a cube. Martha added that the same could be said for the sum of the chalet numbers of the three youngest daughters.

Who is the eldest daughter and what is her chalet number?
