“We – A, B and C – each have some children.

(i) A has at least one girl and twice as many boys as girls.

(ii) B has at least one girl and three times as many boys as girls.

(iii) C has at least one girl and three more boys than girls.

(iv) When I tell you the number of children we have – a number less than 25 – you will know how many children I have, but not how many children each of the others has. Altogether we have……..”

Who is the speaker and how many children does the speaker have?

How would C have 4, 6, 8... children? If you double the number of girls C has, it would allow for all the children except the 3 extra boys, thus 3 plus an even number is an odd number.
