)

Two old friends, Jack and Bill, meet after a long time.
Three kids
Jack: Hey, how are you man?
Bill: Not bad, got married and I have three kids now.
Jack: That?s awesome. How old are they?
Bill: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the
same as your birth date.
Jack: Cool? But I still don?t know.
Bill: My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.
