Hiya Elfy,
Where you been hiding huh? You been down to the woods scaring the teddy bears at their picnic or something?

Peter's children - I guess they are triplets and all 12 years old, so the numba is 12

A little help to those trying to figure it out. The "product" of the 3 numbers is 36. This means if you multiply the 3 numbers together you get 36.

1 x 3 x 12 is 36
2 x 3 x 6 is 36

The question is, how many beers did they drink? 11 or 16?
