If both are plural, why is using both rated wrong?

"âgé" is an adjective, so it agrees in gender and number with the noun.

If the noun is: - masculine singular: "âgé" ex: Un homme âgé. - feminine singular: "âgée" ex: Une femme âgée. - masculine plural: "âgé" ex: Des hommes âgés. - feminine plural: "âgées" ex: Des femmes âgées.

My best guess would be that âgées is the feminine tense, while âgés is the masculinse tense.

Remy : You missed the "s" for plural, you should edit it.
