    Well yeah, you have to have a finished product of 36. You also have a sum that is actually able to be a house number..

    He also said 'my youngest daughter' so it'd allow for the assumption that there may be an age difference.

    For 1st clue possible situations are 1,1,36 1,2,18 1,3,12 1,4,9 1,6,6 2,2,9 2,3,6 3,3,4 Now as for 2nd clue lets add the numbers which comes out 38 21 16 14 13 13 11 10 As he is his friend he knows the house no but still got confused means more than 1 has same value. As you can see above all are unique except 13 which can be 1,6,6 or 2,2,9 Now the 3rd clue sez My youngest daughter. i.e. there is no twins as young. So answer is 1,6,6

    Since they had not met in a "long time" as stated, then accepting as fact that one knew the others house number is stretching it a bit...could of moved etc. However, in spite of that, it was a good problem. Enjoyed it Master OM
