    Tom is from the census bureau and greets Mary at her door. The have the following conversation:

    Tom: I need to know how old your three kids are.
    Mary: The product of their ages is 36.
    Tom: I still don't know their ages.
    Mary: The sum of their ages is the same as my house number.
    Tom: I still don't know their ages.
    Mary: The younger two are twins.
    Tom: Now I know their ages! Thanks!
