I am thinking of four positive integers that are different from each other, and that total less than 18. If I told you both their product and the smallest of the four numbers, you'd be able to identify all four numbers. What are the four numbers?

First, do you realise that the "smallest of the 4 numbers" is 1 or 2?
(since 3+4+5+6 = 18)
I find here are many possible answers.
Like 1,2,3,4 (product = 24) and 1,2,3,5 (product = 30);
no other combos have these products.
Are you sure problem is posted correctly?
