Are you smarter than a 5th grader? - Final!

My daughter has many sisters. She has as many sisters as she has brothers. Each of her brothers has twice as many sisters as brothers. How many sons and daughters do I have?

  • It's 4 daughters, 3 sons.

    Mom has 4 daughters. 1 daughter has 3 sisters, and 3 brothers.

    Each son has 2 brothers and 4 sisters, equaling twice as many sisters as brothers.
