1. ## I was cruising the internet and found this neat logic problem

the problem and answer can be found here I'd hope that you try to solve it without looking at the answer.

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!
