Bob and Mark talk about their families. Bob says he has 3 kids, the product of their ages is 72. He gives another clue: the sum of the ages of his children. Mark points out that there is still not enough information to accurately guess. Finally, Bob says, "My youngest child called Justice." Mark can then correctly determine the ages of Bob's children. What are the ages?

not this riddle again 3 kids what you are supposed to do is factor 72 and see their sums 1+1+72=74 1+2+36=39 1+3+24=28 1+4+18=23 2+2+18=22 1+6+12=19 2+3+12=17 1+8+9=18 2+4+9=15 2+6+6=14 3+3+8=14 3+4+6=13 notice that all the sums are different except for the 2 that add to 14 since there is not enough info, we can conclude that the sum was 14 and that the ages is either 2,6,6 or 3,3,8 after he says, "the youngest is called justice" now we know there is a youngest it cannot be 3,3,8 because 3 and 3 are both youngest therefor the ages are 2,6 and 6 years old
