1. ## A Party

A mathematician (Mike) and a philosopher (Pete), who went to college together, meet many years later. They have the following conversation:

Mike: "So did you get married and have kids?"
Pete: "Yes, I am married and have 3 kids."
Mike: "What are their ages?"
Pete: "Well,the product of their ages is 36 and the sum of their ages is the same as the number of the house where we played chess while at college!".

Pete: "The oldest looks a bit like you!"

Quickly, Mike tells Pete the ages of his 3 children. Can you determine the ages of the 3 children?
