Homework Help: Math

Posted by Sarah on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 12:28pm.

The census taker says, "I need to know the ages of your children."
The mother replies, "I have no one-year-olds. The product of my
children's ages is 90, and the sum of their ages is the same as my
house number."

The census taker replies. "I can see the house number but I still need
more information."

The mother says, "You're right. You also need to know that the boy
across the street is older than my oldest child."

The census taker says, "Thank you, I now know the ages of your
children."

What are the ages of the children?
What is the house number?
What is the age of the boy across the street?

I made a list of factors, but don't know where to go from there. Thank you for your help!
