  3. All of Benís children were triplets except for 41 of them.
  4. All of Benís children were quadruplets except for 41 of them.

Ben and his partners have been busy.

They have spawned 17 single births, 6 sets of twins, 4 sets of triplets, and 3 sets of quadruplets for a total of 17+12+12+12 = 53 children.
