Three More Generations

My mother is twice as old as I am. The ratio between my mothers's age and my age is half the ratio between my age and my daughter's age. When I am as old as my mother, I will be eight times as old as my daughter is now. How old are we?

Is this similar to a problem we have recently encountered? How does it differ?
