A REAL REAL Number Puzzle

Okay so here's a good one in order to make up for that last one.

A teacher thinks of two consecutive numbers between 1 and 10. The first student knows one number and the second student knows the second number. The following exchange takes place:
First: I do not know your number.
Second: Neither do I know your number.
First: Now I know.
What are the 4 possible solutions?

A REAL Number Puzzle

Can you find the relationship between these numbers?

362, 724, 449, 896, 790, 587, 173, 343, 692, 384

It's very proFOUND. You won't regret investing your TIME into figuring it out!

Let me know when you're all STUCK.

Augghhh!

Steven Tyler is NOT going through to Hollywood.  That was bad. 

On another front, I think I get Dad's second puzzle.  Think letters instead of numbers.

Anudder

Don't google this one. It's tricksy.

One day walking in a street, Caesar meets his old math teacher. Happy to meet him, he says hello to the teacher but he doesn't remember that his teacher answers everything with a puzzle:
-- How are you doing, professor? It's been a long time since we don't meet! Are your daughters ok? How old are they now?
-- Multiplying the three ages you get 36
-- But that's not enough to know the ages!
-- So, add up the ages and you'll get the number of that house across the street.
Caesar starts calculating, but still can't figure out. The professor seeing that he wouldn't be able to find the answer says:
-- The oldest girl plays the piano...
That's what Caesar needed to know to figure out the problem. How old is each girl?

Puzzle

Define the relationship between these numbers:

81, 11, 56, 14, 90, 72, 16, 66, 33, 12, 24.

Oh dear.

I was hoping this was a photoshop, but sadly no. It's a real school in Arizona, and those poor kids really are students there.
