Can you solve this?

Two postmen meet on their routes and they start talking.

Postman A says: "I know you have 3 sons, how old are they?"

Postman B says: "If you take their ages in years, and multiply them together, the result is your age."

A: "That's not enough info"

B: "The sum of the 3 numbers equals the number of windows in that
building over there."

A: "Hmm... that's still not enough."

B: "My middle son is red-haired."

A: "Ah, now I see!"

How old are the 3 sons?

i feel like being a serious party pooper:

this is a famous logic problem (not originally) from a little-known textbook called Intro to Logic: Propositional Logic by Howard Pospesel.

i took a class taught out of this book, and i had this problem at the beginning of the course and was unable to solve it; later i figured it out, but it's a doozie.

you can bet i'm not gonna spoil the answer :p

I think its funny that he posted it in B&T because he knew full well that people would get frustrated and be like "FUCK YOU!!".

"How dare you remind me of my own intellectual inadequacies!!"


Damn you broken!! And damn the earth you walk on!!
