Note that this way of asking someone's age only works with children under 10 or so. For adults / teenagers, use 多大 (duo1 da4) instead if 几岁.

Use 几 for young children (around 0–16). 多少 for all cases.

the translation is wrong, it missed a 了, correct is 你几岁? but it is not polite saying , 是一个非常不礼貌的说法。the correct way to say it should be : to children or young adult : 你多大了? to senior person or respectful person (polite way to say): 您多大年纪了?
