    More Logic Puzzles: Brand New Flavors

    This one's a bit more simple than the last one:

    Brand New Flavors

    When the Milk Matriarch chain restaurants were issued five new ice cream flavors for their popular “Snowstorm” treat, Randy Randall, proprietor of the Smallsville branch, devised a secret contest. The first person to try one of the new flavors won a second Snowstorm and a free balloon. Within a week, three women (Paula, Ruthie, and Deanne) and two men (Jethro and Norm) had claimed their prizes, each having tried a different flavor. By the snippets below, can you reconstruct each winner’s full name (one surname is Bones) and the Snowstorm he or she stomached?

    1. Ruthie, Orwell, and the one who ordered the Black Olive Snowstorm all had ordered medium-sized treats when they won the contest.

    2. Quint became the first customer to sample a Pepperoni Snowstorm.

    3. When Norm and Keats (who isn’t Deanne) won the contest, they both had bravely ordered large Snowstorms.

    4. The first Chislic Snowstorm and the first Monterey Jack snowstorm were both bought by women.

    5. Jethro wasn’t the one who ordered a large Guacamole Snowstorm.

    6. Mrs. Ingalls (who isn’t Paula) didn’t polish off a Monterey Jack Snowstorm.

    Try this one:

    A census taker goes to a house to get the information about the number of inhabitants of the house and their ages. The door is opened by a woman who gives him her age and tells him that she has 3 daughters. When the census taker asks her for the ages of her daughters, she tells him that the product of their ages is 36. The census taker can't determine their ages from this info alone. So she tells him that the sum of their ages is the next-door no. He says that he still can't determine their ages. Now the woman tells him that her eldest sister is eating pizza upstairs. Now the census taker is satisfied and leaves. What are the ages of the daughters?

    EDIT: There actually was a mistake. Corrected now.

    I'm not sure I understand it the way you've written it. The census-taker is told that the sum of their ages (the daughters) is 36. He is then told that the sum of their ages (presumably the daughters, since you didn't state otherwise) is the number of the house next door. Since the census-taker already knows the sum of their ages, how does this help at all?

    Oops 36 is the product of the ages. Sorry!
