      1) you need to find all the products that equal 36
      2)you find the sum of the numbers
      3) you will notice that every single one is different except for two that equal 13.
      4) then you think, if this wasnt enough info, then the sum must have been 13
      5) That leaves you with 2 2 9 and 1 6 6, and because you now know that there is an oldest daughter it must be 2 2 9

      make sense?
      Sure, it made sense with the 13. But how about the original version of the address. That's what I wanted a good explanation for ;-)

        • Yeah, logic problem.
          Einstein's Riddle!
          There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.
          The question is: Who owns the fish?
          Hints:
          The Brit lives in the red house.
          The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
          The Dane drinks tea.
          The green house is on the left of the white house.
          The green homeowner drinks coffee.
          The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
          The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
          The man living in the center house drinks milk.
          The Norwegian lives in the first house.
          The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats.
          The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
          The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
          The German smokes prince.
          The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
          The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.
          Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it. Its not hard, you just need to pay attention and be patient.

              yeah i looked at a better one, and im not supposed to be talking to you when i ask you are just supposed to here to guys saying it. and the guy who is answering knows the address. but after awhile he realizes that wasnt enough. the reason you can immediately tell its 13 is because, if it was 14 only 9 4 1 would be possible and he wouldnt have needed more info. if it was 10 then 3 4 3 would have been the only solution. 13 was the only one that had two solutions therefore making the address not enough. this leaves you knowing its either 9 2 2 or 1 6 6, and you know the rest

              better?

                            • Of what? The daughters? Or Einsteins riddle?

                              Just post :-)

                              Comment


                              • a good read...

                                Puzzle: A man in my neighborhood has three daughters. One day when I asked their ages he said, ?The product of their ages is 36.?

                                When I still couldn?t find their ages he said, ?Ok. I?ll give you another clue: the sum of their ages is same as the number of my house.?

                                I knew the number but still couldn?t calculate their ages. So the man gave me a last clue, ?My eldest daughter lives upstairs.?

                                Finally I was able to figure out their ages. How old are they?

                                Hide Hint

                                Hint: There are only so many ways that three numbers can have a product of 36.

                                Hide Answer

                                Answer: The ages are 2, 2, and 9.

                                Hide Solution

                                Solution: There are only so many ways that three numbers can have a product of 36:

                                1 ? 1 ? 36 = 36
                                1 ? 2 ? 18 = 36
                                1 ? 3 ? 12 = 36
                                1 ? 4 ? 9 = 36
                                1 ? 6 ? 6 = 36
                                2 ? 2 ? 9 = 36
                                2 ? 3 ? 6 = 36
                                3 ? 3 ? 4 = 36

                                It?s got to be one of these, but we don?t know which one. The second clue is about the sum of their ages:

                                1 + 1 + 36 = 38
                                1 + 2 + 18 = 21
                                1 + 3 + 12 = 16
                                1 + 4 + 9 = 14
                                1 + 6 + 6 = 13
                                2 + 2 + 9 = 13
                                2 + 3 + 6 = 11
                                3 + 3 + 4 = 10

                                The narrator knew the number of the man?s house, so the only way that this clue didn?t help him is if the sum is 13, in which case it?s still ambiguous. So we know the ages are either 1, 6, and 6, or 2, 2, and 9.

                                The third clue makes a reference to the oldest daughter, so the ages must be 2, 2, and 9.

                                (It?s true that there could still be an ?oldest? daughter in the case of 1, 6, and 6, since they could be 10 months apart and both be 6. But since the man gave this as a clue, we can assume that it?s suppose to push us towards the 2, 2, and 9 solution.)
