A research team went to a village somewhere between the jungles of Africa. Luckily for them, they reached on the day when quite an interesting custom was to be performed. The custom was performed once in a year as they confirmed and was performed in order to collect the taxes from every male of the region.

The taxes were to be paid in the form of grains. Everyone must pay pounds of grain equaling his respective age. Which means a 20 year old will have to pay 20 pounds of grains and a 30 years old will pay 30 pounds of grain and so on.

The chief who collects the tax have 7 weights and a large 2 pan scale to weigh. But there is another custom that the chief can weigh only with three of the seven weights.
Can you find out the weights of the seven weights? Also what is the maximum age of the man that can be weighed for the payment of taxes ?

Seven detectives were trying to solve a murder case. One detective had been on the police force for twenty years. The other six, Quinn, Ralph, Steve, Ted, Uriah, and Victor, were new to the police force. They were trying to solve the case based on six particulars:

1. The street the murderer lived on.
2. The murderer's gender.
3. The murderer's height.
4. The murderer's occupation.
5. The murderer's age.
6. The genre of music the murderer preferred.

Quinn arrested a man who lived on Austin Avenue, was 5'0", a teacher, in his 20's, and preferred rock and roll.
Ralph arrested a woman who lived on Guildford Way, was 5'6", a doctor, in her 30's, and preferred classical.
Steve arrested a man who lived on Mariner Way, was 5'11", a doctor, in his 20's, and preferred country.
Ted arrested a man who lived on Pipeline Road, was 5'0", a construction worker, in his 40's, and preferred classical.
Uriah arrested a woman who lived on Rochester Avenue, was 5'0", a storekeeper, in her 20's, and preferred rock and roll.
Victor arrested a woman who lived on Shaughnessy Street, was 6'4", a teacher, in her 50's, and preferred jazz.

The seventh detective, the one who had been a detective for twenty years, arrested the real murderer. He then said to the other six, "I see you have arrested two of the three shortest men and one of the two tallest women in town. But they are all innocent, and so are the other three. Here are two facts:
1. Each of you six are correct in the same number of particulars as anyone else.
2. Exactly one of each kind of particular is correct."

On which street did the murderer live?
