The first grad says 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..”

Second: “oh sorry, the oldest one just started to play the piano”
First: “wonderful! my oldest is the same age!”
