Why is it wrong to use "A" at the beginning of this phrase?

Like this:

A que idade as crianças começam a pagar?

I am not understanding why it is wrong if it is the word given in the clue...

Would "com quale idade" be acceptable here, too?

"Com qual idade as crianças começam a pagar?" Também estaria certo. :)

Not sure if I have seen "Com que..." before. "Em que..." feels right to me, does this work?

If I answered this question, I would have to say "As crianças começam a pagar com o idade de (numero)", right?

Exato, você também pode usar uma resposta mais curta, como: "Com (idade) anos."

Abraços.

"As crianças começam a pagar com o idade de (numero) anos." would be fine. An answer that i would consider a lot more natural though is the following:

"As crianças começam a pagar aos [numero] anos."

Why not "jogar"?

Jogar = Play Pagar = Pay

Jogar ≠ Pagar

It can't be: com que idade começam a pagar as crianças?

This sentence structure is not usual in Portuguese.

"Com que idade" seems idiomatic, but it's not among the help tips for "At what age."
