Three women go out to sushi dinner together, and each of them brings their only daughter. The first course that arrives is a specialty sushi roll which is placed in the center of the table, and contains one piece for each person. Before they begin eating, the eldest at the table leads them in a prayer. Everyone closes their eyes and bows their head, and each of the women holds the hand of their daughter throughout the prayer. When the prayer is finished, everyone opens their eyes, and notices that one piece of sushi is missing. The youngest at the table, legitimately surprised, shouts, "Hey, someone took a piece!" After a few seconds she continues, "Oh, I know who took it."
What is the maximum number of people at the table that could know who took the sushi?
