• the answer is 4,3,3 or 9,2,2 because 36 = 36*1*1 = 18*2*1 = 12*3*1 = 9*4*1 = 9*2*2 = 6*6*1 = 6*3*2 = 4*3*3 and as per clue my youngest daughters eye color is brown that means youngest daughter is not one as per grammer the sentence is Plural,therefore possibility of answer is 4,3,3 or 9,2,2 – Abhishek Patel Sep 7 '16 at 10:34
