105. A census taker asked a housewife how many people lived in her house and what
their ages were. The woman told him that three daughters lived in the house, that the product of their ages was 36, and that the sum of their ages was
the number of the house next door. The census taker went next door and looked at the number on the door. When he came back, he told the housewife
that the information she had given was insufficient, whereupon she replied, "My oldest daughter is sleeping upstairs." The census taker
thanked her and promptly figured out the daughters' ages. What were they and how did he know?

The woman had a 9-year-old daughter and 2-year-old twins. Since the census taker knew both the product and the sum of their ages, confusion could only arise if two or more sets of ages led to the same product and sum. Breaking 36 into three factors, only two sets of ages (9,2,2, and 6,6,1) lead to the same sum of 13. The woman's final piece of information told the census taker that there was only one oldest daughter, not two.
