Interview Questions

My friends always ask me what kind of questions I get in my interviews.  Most of my interviews are for Software Engineer (Programmer) or Technical Consultant.

The Oldest Plays the Piano

Two MIT math grads bump into each other while shopping at Fry’s. They haven’t seen each other in over 20 years.

First grad to the second: “How have you been?”

Second: “Great! I got married and I have three daughters now.”

First: “Really? How old are they?”

Second: “Well, the product of their ages is 72, and the sum of their ages is the same as the number on that building over there…”

First: “Right, ok… Oh wait… Hmm, I still don’t know.”

Second: “Oh sorry, the oldest one just started to play the piano.”

First: “Wonderful! My oldest is the same age!”

How old was the first grad’s daughter?
