The integers from 2 to 14 (including 2 and 14) are written on 13 cards (one number per card). You and a friend take it in turns to take one of the numbers.
When you have both taken five numbers, you notice that the product of the numbers you have collected is equal to the product of the numbers that your friend has collected. What is the product of the numbers on the three cards that neither of you has taken?
