### You have as many brothers as sisters your brothers have twice as many sisters as brothers?

This is a logic puzzle. YOU are part of the puzzle, so you have equal brothers and sisters. Your brothers have twice as many sisters (meaning you) as they have brothers. So if you have one brother and one sister, they are equal. But if your brother has two sisters, he has twice as many sisters as brothers, right? It doesn't say that he HAS brothers, just that he has twice as many sisters as brothers. So you have a brother and a sister, but your brother has two sisters. Three kids, two girls and one boy.

### If your youngest sister has the same number of brothers and sisters and her oldest brother has twice as many sisters as brothers how many kids are in the family?

Let the number of sisters be s and the number of brothers b. We must remember to bear in mind that no one is their own brother or sister! 'The youngest sister has the exact same number of brothers and sisters.' Therefore: s - 1 = b 'Her oldest brother has twice as many sisters as brothers.' So: 2(b - 1) = s 2b - 2 = s Subtracting 1 from each side: 2b - 3 = s - 1 But s - 1 = b, so 2b - 3 = b b - 3 = 0 b = 3 And from above, s = 4. Thus there are seven siblings altogether; Four girls, 3 boys.
