Two mail carriers meet on their routes and have a conversation. A:"I know you have three sons. How old are they?" B:"If you take their ages, expressed in years, and multiply those numbers, the result will equal your age." A:"But that's not enouth to tell me the answer!" B:"The sum of these three numbers equals the number of windows in that building." A:"Hmm[pause]. But it's still not enouth!" B:"My middle son is red-haired." A:"Ah, now it's clear!" How old are the sons? (Hint: The ambiguity at the earlier stages is needed to determine the solution for the full conversation.) (G.P.Klimov)
