Divide the set of integers from 1 to 15 into 2 subsets - a subset A of 13 numbers and B of 2 numbers so that the sum of the members of A equals the product of the two numbers in B.

I was presented with this puzzle long time ago and remembered(erroneously) 3 numbers: 13,2,15 instead of 12,3,15 .
When I tried to solve "my puzzle" I have introduced a correction,
but solved it for Sum =131 instead of 136 (all P&P)- 10,11 being the numbers creating product 110 and the "sum" 131=21+110.
Sorry for the waste of time caused by my haste...still ERRARE HUMANUM EST.
DejMar, your expansion (research!) is appreciated.
