The three daughters (Posted on 2002-10-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A man in my neighbourhood has three daughters. One day when I asked their ages he said:

"The product of their ages is 36".

When I still couldn't find their ages he said:

"Ok. I'll give you another clue: the sum of their ages is same as the number of my house".

I knew the number but still couldn't calculate their ages. So the man gave me a last hint, he said:

"My eldest daughter lives upstairs".

Finally I was able to find their ages. Can you?

It is always humbling when a "non-math person" sees the answer so quickly when I, a "math person" has aready wasted some scratch paper.
