Hello everybody

I am confused and I do not know which sentence is more correct:

The girl is quarter a century old
The girl is quarter of a century old

I think that the first sentence is more correct, but I am not sure

    In the case of "a quarter century old", does anyone know if this should be hyphenated? I see both quarter century and quarter-century in internet searches. I think I'd have normally used a hyphen, but suddenly I'm :confused:...
