Party People (Posted on 2003-07-21) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Three people at a party discover that the product of any two of their ages is equal to the year in which the third was born.

What is the most recent year the party could have taken place?

It would seem that all three must be age 44 at the party and have been born in 1936. That would mean the party took place in the latter part of 1980, after all have had their birthdays, or in the early part of 1981, before any had a birthday. So 1981 is the latest year in which this could happen.
