Question

A census taker stops at a house, notes down the number on the
door, and knocks. When a woman answers, he asks her age and notes
the answer. Then he asks if anyone else lives at the house. She
replies that three children live with her. Upon asking their ages,
the census taker is told that the sum of their ages equals the
number on the door and that the product of their ages equals 72.
The census taker responds by saying he needs more information. The
woman says that her oldest

child loves chocolate milk. The census taker then records the
children's ages and walks away. What are the childrensâ€™ ages?
