A girl has as many brothers as sisters.

But each brother has only half as many brothers as sisters.

How many brothers and sisters are there in the family?

————————————————————————————————————————————–


Answer: 

Four sisters and three brothers.

The key here is to keep it simple. Be sure to count the sisters and brothers in total and in terms of their own number of siblings. Then the answer gets a little easier.

Did you solve this one? How long did it take you?
