This is a wonderful puzzle contributed by Pallav Pandey – thank you Pallav. This is a nice puzzle that does not require use of any specific concept, and should be fun for children as well.
2 maths prof who used to be room-mates meet after a long time in their college reunion and start chatting about family.
The first guy asks, how many children you have and how old are they. The second says 3 girls and the product of their ages is 36. The first guy says, I’m unable to know how old they are, so the second guy says the sum is the same as our room number in college. The first guy says, beats me.
The second guy says the colour of my youngest daughter’s eyes is blue.
The first guy says – oh I get it now.
What are the ages of the second guy’s daughters.
