Pumpkin s-creams

Three boys came home after trick-or-treating.


Their mum asked: “Did you get any Pumpkin s-creams? They’re my favourite.”


The boys replied: “If you can guess how many Pumpkin s-creams we each got, then we will each give you one”.


Mum smiled and said: “Okay, what are your clues?”.


Adam said: “If you multiply the number of Pumpkin s-creams we each got, you will get 36”.


Billy said: “I got the same number of Pumpkin s-creams as Connor”.


Connor said: “Our total number of Pumpkin s-creams is the same as our house number”.


Mum’s eyes lit up as she said: “I can work out how many Pumpkin screams you each got now!”.


Can you work out how many Pumpkin s-creams the boys each got?

 

(note: none of the boys got more than 20 pumpkin s-creams!)
