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? (10/31)


This trick question gives you a bunch of ways to get totally confused if you try to figure out the answer. The trick is to make it as straightforward as possible. Allow a complete count of the sisters and daughters, as well as their own number of siblings. Then the solution becomes a bit simpler.

The answer is ‘three brothers and four sisters.’ This one had a little math involved!
