The answer to your question can be found in Genesis chapter 5:

3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years and begat a son in his own image; and called his name Seth:

6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

9 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

12 And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel:

15 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:

28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:
29 And he called his name Noah,...

So if you add all the years together: 130 + 105 + 90 + 70 + 65 + 162 + 65 + 187 + 182 = 1056

So Noah was born in year 1056. Adam however lived to be 930 years old as found in Genesis 5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. So if you take the year of Noah's birth 1056 and subtract the years of Adam's life (remember he was born in year 0) then you get 1056 - 930 = 126. So Noah was born 126 years after Adam died.

As regarding Eve the Scriptures do not give an age when she died.
