  1. There is a version of the Chumash Mikraot Gedolot published by Machon Hamaor with an additional commentary by Rashi called Mussaf Rashi. There, Rashi explains that Noach was five hundred years old when Yefet was born, he was five hundred and one when Cham was born and five hundred and two when Shem was born.
