Mathematician: Yes, of course, please ask.

Lady: What is the age of my three daughters?

Mathematician: I am confused, please give me a clue.

Lady: A multiplication of their ages is 36.

The mathematician thinks and says, "I am confused, please give me some more clues."

Lady: The addition of age is your bus seat number.

  • $\begingroup$ 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 $\endgroup$ – Abhishek Patel Sep 7 '16 at 10:34
