To get 6, 6, 1 as one of the answer think of yourself as the person sitting beside that woman. So you will obviously know her seat number. Before seeing her seat number you will have following combination of ages of her daughters as these are the only possible numbers to make their product 36.
|Ages||Their product||Their sum|
|1, 1, 36||36||38|
|1, 3, 12||36||16|
|1, 4, 9||36||14|
|1, 2, 18||36||21|
|1, 6, 6||36||13|
|2, 2, 9||36||13|
|2, 3, 6||36||11|
|3, 3, 4||36||10|
Now obviously if their sum is other than 13 (seat number) you can very clearly tell the ages of her daughters as there is unique combination.
Now you will agree that seat number is 13.
However, you are still not sure is the age of the daughters are 1, 6, 6 or 2, 2, 9 so you have to take help of third clue that says “Color of her youngest daughter is blue”. This will help you to identify that age of the youngest daughter is 1 and other two are 6 years old.
