Hi folks. This is a quite hard one, took me long time to figure it out. Hope not everybody knows it yet. Have fun.

1. The Penguin says to t he Icebear: I know a sum X which is calculated of a and b so a+b=X , but I don't know what a and b are.

2. The Icebear says: I know a product Y which is calculated by the factors a and b so a*b=Y . I don't know which numbers a and b are, but I knew that you wouldn't know either.

3. The Penguin replies: Well if you say that, than I know the solution which numbers a and b are.

4. The Icebear says: OK, so if you say that, than I also know what a and b are.

Which numbers are a and b?

Yes it's the same a and b in a+b=X and a*b=Y and no, it can not be any number, and yes, Penguins and Icebears may meet somewhere between Arctic and Antartic to talk about stupid riddles. ðŸ˜‰ Sorry if the english isn't the best, but should be no matter to the riddle...
