Party People II (Posted on 2013-01-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A speaker truthfully made the following statements:
  • "At a party there were 14 adults, 17 children, 12 males and 19 females."
  • "Then I arrived at the party and the number of different man-woman couples possible became equal to the number of different boy-girl couples possible. (For example, if there were 5 men and 7 women at the party, then there would have been 5*7 or, 35 possible man-woman couples.)"
Is the speaker a man, a woman, a boy, or a girl?
