I like Number nine .....

I really Love the subject but I can't study it now.....As I've to study Biology instead of Maths :))

Hi hadia,
I'm glad to hear that you are good at Math. I'm neither good nor bad at Math. :vv, but I'm quite fond of it.
And...I've prepared a small Math exercise for you : D. Let me know your answer !

One day, a worker visited a farmer's house. The worker said to the farmer :
- Tell me a bit about your children.
The farmer replied : - Well, I have three daughters.
- What are your daughters' ages ? The worker asked
The farmer replied :
-The product of their ages is 72, and the sum of their ages is my house number.
After spending some minutes finding the answer, the worker said:
- The information is not enough ! Give me more !
The farmer replied:
- Oh yes, I almost forgot, my oldest daughter loves chocolate so much !
After that, the worker answered correctly about the children's ages.

And here is my question : What are the daughters' ages ?
Note: This Math exercise only has one key.
Good luck.

Hey there Giang :)
Um..Hm... Well the problem is not so easy....still I've work out to give the answer :)
As you have mentioned that there's an oldest daughter, which means that the other two are younger than her and there's no possibility that they may have age equal to hers! So, I guess I have two possible answers in my way:
First Possibility:
Eldest daughter= ( 9 years) because you said she likes chocolate a lot and chocolate's spellings are equal to 9 .......Moreover 7+2=9 (LOL...It's a guess)
And other two ages are 4 and 2 and house number=15
Second Possibility:
Now, the house number!!....It's not mention....therefore I have a possibility which gives us the answer...
Three Daughters (spelling= 14) so the house number might be 14
The 3 numbers which give product equal to 72 and sum equals to 14 are
8,3,3 so , the eldest is 8 years old and the younger ones are of the same age...
Also 8+3+3= 14
Now we know that daughters are three so
14-3= 11 and (House number)'s spellings are 11....... So that can also be the possibility...

Ha ha ha :P
Dearest Giang....What do you think about it?? ....huh?
Phew! That was really not easy to do.......I've not practice math sine a year or two....may be that's the reason I found it difficult :))
What's your answer by the way, huh??
Do tell. I'm eager to know if I'm right or wrong :)

Chúc một ngày tốt lành ( have a nice day :P)
Hadia :)
