Here's another one [URGH!!! Got to go back to my Chem]
A man wanted to marry a woman. She agreed to marry him, if and only if he can guess the age of all her 3 daughters. She gave him 2 clues:
1. The product of the age of her daughters is [edited: 36]
2. The sum of the age of her daughters equals to the address of the house next door
The man made some calculations, went out to find out the address of the house next door, but still could not arrive with the answer. He begged for one more clue. Pitying the man (I think she wanted to marry him too), she gave him one more clue:
3. Her oldest daughter loves strawberry
Instantly, the guy got the answer and they were happily married to each other. The question: How did he solve it?
