Find three whole, positive numbers that have the same answer when multiplied together as when added together.

Am I missing something?

Surely it's :

1 + 2 + 3 = 6

1 x 2 x 3 = 6

Seems far too easy.

Ross five friends Rachel,Monica Phoebe,Joey and Chandler lives in the same road.

Rachel lives in house:A , Monica lives in house:B , Phoebe lives in house:C , Joey lives in house:D , Chandler lives in house:E

Mathematically
B*C*D = 1260
B + C + D = 2E
2A = E

The road numbers run from 2 to 222.

Can you tell the house number of each of Ross's friends ?

There are several numbers which would fit but no certainty as which is B,C or D

e.g. 10.4.15.21.20 12.4.35.9.24 perhaps a piece of information is missing?

No more info MYG seems some are saying the same as you.  However this is the answer someone else found.

A = 16
B = 18
C = 21
D = 25
E = 32

A few friends are enjoying their sea voyage in a boat full of apples. On the way, they felt hungry and thus decided to eat the apples. Together, they ate two dozen of apples. When they have eaten the apples, will there be any change in the water level?

If the question refers to the level that the boat sits in the water,

then logically there won’t be any change, as the weight of apples in the boat

is unchanged, just redistributed, inside their tums and in the boat.

Hurah yes. cheers

When the boat is floating on the water, it contains all the apples. Therefore, the apples have already displaced the water equal to their own volume. Now, it does not matter if they eat two or four dozen of apples, the water level will remain the same.

A man is the owner of a winery who recently passed away. In his will, he left 21 barrels (seven of which are filled with wine, seven of which are half full, and seven of which are empty) to his three sons. However, the wine and barrels must be split, so that each son has the same number of full barrels, the same number of half-full barrels, and the same number of empty barrels. Note that there are no measuring devices handy. How can the barrels and wine be evenly divided?

Just clear this off,convert 4 half empty to two full and two empty then the division is simple.

excellent MYG

Two half-full barrels are dumped into one of the empty barrels. Two more half-full barrels are dumped into another one of the empty barrels. This results in nine full barrels, three half-full barrels, and nine empty barrels. Each son gets three full barrels, one half-full barrel, and three empty barrels

An Arab sheik is old and must will his fortune to one of his two sons. He makes a proposition. His two sons will ride their camels in a race, and whichever camel crosses the finish line LAST will win the fortune for its owner. During the race, the two brothers wander aimlessly for days, neither willing to cross the finish line. In desperation, they ask a wise man for advice. He tells them something; then the brothers leap onto the camels and charge toward the finish line. What did the wise man say?

They decide to cross the finish line at EXACTLY the same time?
